Championship Blackpool have appointed Paul Ince as manager on a one-year rolling contract. The 45-year-old, who has been without a job since leaving Notts County in April 2011, will become the club's third permanent manager of the season.

Ince links up with his 21-year-old son Tom, who has scored 17 goals in 33 appearances this season.

"It's strange sitting here as the manager, having obviously watched Blackpool as a fan as well as watching my son play," he told the club website.

"I'm over the moon though and delighted, it's great to be back on the training ground and great to be involved with, and in charge of, a great bunch of lads."
