Kenny Jackett has been appointed as the new manager of Welsh club Swansea City.
The former Watford boss, who was in charge of The Hornets in 1996/97, had been working as assistant to Ian Holloway at QPR but has left the Superhoops to challenge for promotion to the First Division without him as he takes up his second managerial post.
The former Welsh international replaces Brian Flynn, who left the Vetch on March 18 despite saving The Swans from relegation last season and guiding them to the fifth round of the FA Cup.
Swansea are currently 10th in Division Three, 10 points off the play-offs, having suffered a dip in form following an excellent start to the season.
42-year-old Jackett's first game in charge will be Saturday's trip to fifth-placed Lincoln.
A statement from the Swansea City board, published on the club's official website, read: "The Board of Swansea City Football Club are very pleased to announce the appointment of their new Team Manager Mr Kenny Jackett. Kenny has signed a contract with the Club until the end of the 2005/2006 season.
"The Board feels that Kenny has the passion, knowledge and experience to improve the Club, he also has the level of expertise and enthusiasm to take the Club forward. His will to win and ambition is extensive and he has stated he will leave no stone unturned in his aim to get the players fit, organised and as motivated as possible."
