Manchester City legend Shaun Goater takes over at seventh tier Ilkeston

Manchester City legend Shaun Goater has taken his first managerial job in England at seventh tier Ilkeston.

The Bermudian goal king's only previous managerial role was with North Village Rams in homeland but the Robins believe they have pulled of a coup with the appointment of the 46-year-old.

Goater has agreed to step in and take over the reins from former boss Paul Holland whose departure from the New Manor Ground was announced on Friday morning. After a poor run of results that saw the club win just one game in 10, Ilkeston parted ways with Holland promising a 'fresh approach'.
