Swindon Town announce the appointment of Phil Brown as the club's new manager until the end of the season.

Swindon Town have announced the appointment of Phil Brown as the club's new manager until the end of the season.

The 58-year-old, who has been out of work since leaving Southend United in January, has been given the job on a short-term contract.

Swindon have been without a permanent manager since David Flitcroft left the role on March 1 to take over at Mansfield Town.

After putting pen to paper at the County Ground, Brown told the club's official website: "It's a great challenge. It's a short-term deal at the moment and the lure of the playoffs and possible promotion was a big attraction for me, as was the sales pitch from the chairman. Lee [Power] outlined what he wants for the club and the ambition and that really interested me."

Brown will be joined by Matthew Taylor in his coaching staff.
