Ayr United have appointed a new head coach.

Lee Bullen has left his position as the under-23 coach at Sheffield Wednesday to become the latest man to take the hotseat at Somerset Park.

He replaces Jim Duffy, who was sacked in December after just over two months in the role.

The 50-year-old former Dunfermline and Falkirk defender also played for Sheffield Wednesday between 2004-08, where he managed to play in all 11 positions for the South Yorkshire club.

He had three spells as caretaker manager at Hillsborough but the Ayr role is his first permanent managerial appointment.


Bullen's former employers wished him well.
