Caretaker manager Simon Davies has been confirmed as the new manager of Chester City after being handed the job until the end of the season.

The 33-year-old former Manchester United and Wales midfielder was put in temporary charge of first-team affairs last week following the sacking of Bobby Williamson.

Despite losing his opening two games against Darlington and Wrexham, Davies has been told he can stay at the helm for the remainder of the campaign.

Davies, formerly City`s youth team boss, said: “I am pleased to have been given the job, and I am obviously pleased that the club`s owner has given me the opportunity.

“I have enjoyed every single minute of the last week. Obviously the results have been disappointing, but we`ve created chances in the two games I`ve been in charge and I know that we will turn things around.”
