Former Prescot Cables and current Bootle manager Brian Richardson has praised the appointment of Kevin Lynch.
Lynch replaces Craig Davies as Cables manager following the sacking last month.
Davies’ assistant, Lee Bignell, took temporary charge of the Bulls during the search for their new head coach and during his spell he won one and lost one.
He famously overcame Kidsgrove with 10 men, just days after losing their manager, captain and vice-captain.
Lynch comes into the IP Truck Parts Stadium hot seat following stints with Marine and Colwyn Bay.
Richardson spent three years at Prescot, taking them to within touching distance of promotion and led them to three Liverpool Senior Cup finals, winning two, before he joined FC United of Manchester as assistant manager.
He told Off The Park: “He’s a good appointment, he’s a local lad, he’s got good experience at this level. He’ll know players and have good contacts which is what it’s sometimes about, I wish him and I wish them all the best.
“I hope it works out for them as long as it don’t happen a week on Saturday when we play them.”
Lynch will take charge of his first Bulls game this weekend in the FA Trophy.
