Premiership side Institute have announced former player John Quigg as their new manager.

The 52-year-old is also former Candystripes defender and he left as Derry City's youth coach last month.

He takes over from interim boss Kevin Doherty and will oversee Stute's final home game of the season on Tuesday.

Institute are eighth in the standings and have secured their top-flight status for next season.

Doherty, who replaced Paddy McLaughlin after his move to Cliftonville in February, was out of the running for the permanent post because of his job with the Irish FA.

Quigg was at Institute's home defeat by Ards on Saturday and will take charge as Stute host relegation-threatened Newry City to the Brandywell.

Quigg excited to get started

"I am absolutely delighted to be appointed," Quigg said on Monday.

"I want to get about the players and the club. I want to see what is there and what we need.

"Institute have been a revelation (this season), they were super under Paddy and Kevin has taken it on and kept the stability.

"You have to be realistic as well, I know this is going to be a hard job. "
