PRESTON Athletic have appointed co-managers to replace Craig Nisbet.

Paul Riley and Jack Lynch have been appointed to succeed Nisbet, who was sacked at the weekend following the club's 7-1 thrashing to East Stirlingshire.

Preston will finish the season bottom of the Lowland League, and are preparing for life in the East of Scotland League next term. 

The Panners announced the appointment of their co-managers on social media...

Riley and Lynch's first match in charge will be next Saturday (April 15), as the Panners welcome Selkirk to the Pennypit for their penultimate league fixture of the season.
