Chesterfield appoint Accrington boss Paul Cook
Paul Cook has left Accrington Stanley to become the new manager of League Two rivals Chesterfield.
Cook, who joined Accrington from League of Ireland side Sligo Rovers in February, has signed a two-and-half year contract at The Proact Stadium.
"It's a fantastic club with a great infrastructure and I'm really looking forward to the challenge," Cook told the Spireites club website.
Cook, 45, replaces John Sheridan, who was relieved of his duties in August.
Chesterfield chief executive Chris Turner said: "Paul did a fantastic job in Ireland and has done well with a very small budget at Accrington.
"He's very hungry to succeed and hopefully the change of direction will bring success to the club."
Accrington are now looking for a new manager to take the reins at Crown Ground.
