Jim Chapman is the new manager at Annan Athletic

Jim Chapman has been installed as the new manager of Annan Athletic.

The Third Division club say they were impressed by the "all-round package" the former Albion Rovers and Dumbarton boss had to offer.

Chapman, 47, takes over following the resignation of Harry Cairney last month after six-and-a-half years in charge at Galabank.

"The vision for the club and the people at the club really excite me," Chapman told BBC Scotland.

"To me, the club have been a breath of fresh air for Scottish football."

Annan sit sixth in the table, with caretaker manager Euan Brydson having won three out of five matches.
