Fleetwood Town have moved quickly to replace Graham Alexander who was sacked yesterday, by promoting his assistant Chris Lucketti into the manager’s role.
According to the BBC, Lucketti has been handed the reigns for what will be his first managerial position.
Fleetwood chairman Andy Pilley confirmed the latest club news on BBC Radio Lancashire, stating that the 44-year-old would take charge of first-team affairs with immediate effect and would be assisted by Barry Nicholson.
As a player Lucketti was a no-nonsense central defender who had a decent career in the lower leagues with Bury, Huddersfield Town, Preston North End and Sheffield United.
It remains to be seen just how much of an impact Lucketti can have on the first-team given his lack of managerial experience, but fans should be safe in the knowledge that at least he knows the current crop of talent within the first-team.
The new boss will take charge of his troops for the first time this Saturday as they travel to Scunthorpe United for a bottom of the table clash in League One.
