The 44-year-old has been out of work since October.

Sky Bet League Two new boys Scunthorpe have appointed Paul Hurst as their new manager.

The 44-year-old has been out of work since October when he was sacked as manager of Ipswich after five months in charge.

Hurst had impressed at Shrewsbury, taking over in October 2016 when the club were bottom of Sky Bet League One and leading them to an 18th-place finish.

The Shrews finished third the following season, losing to Rotherham in the Play-Off Final at Wembley.

He had previously taken Grimsby back into the Football League.

Chris Doig is Hurst's assistant, while Andy Dawson, who had been in temporary charge following the departure of Stuart McCall in March, reverts back to a position on the coaching staff.

The length of Hurst's contract has not been disclosed.
