Nuneaton Town appoint Mark Noon as caretaker manager
Promotion-chasing Conference Premier side Nuneaton Town have named Mark Noon as their caretaker manager, following Kevin Wilkin's departure to Wrexham.
Noon, 30, had been assistant at Liberty Way to Kevin Wilkin, who was appointed Wrexham boss on Thursday.
The ex-Coventry City trainee, who joined Boro in 2004, helped the club to promotion from the Southern League to the Conference Premier in 2012.
He will be assisted by left-back Simon Forsdick at the fourth-placed side.
Former Telford player Forsdick, also 30, has been part of the Boro backroom staff after suffering a serious injury during pre-season, which has prevented him from playing this campaign.
''We have solid foundations and strength of depth at the club both with backroom staff and in the dressing room," said Boro chairman Ian Neale.
"We will look to harness that desire and ambition from within in order to chase down a place in the play-offs."
Nuneaton currently sit four points clear of sixth-placed Forest Green in the play-off places ahead of Saturday's home match against fellow play-off contenders Grimsby.
