Hammell appointed Motherwell manager | 'It is an honour'
Motherwell have named Steven Hammell as their new manager on a two-year deal.
The 40-year-old had been in interim charge following Graham Alexander's departure on the eve of the new season and will be assisted by Brian Kerr.
Hammell led the Fir Park side to a 1-0 victory over St Mirren on the opening day before losing 2-1 in injury time to St Johnstone.
Having played for the club across a 17-year-spell, making a post-war record of almost 600 appearances, Hammell's first match as permanent manager is on Saturday at Aberdeen.
"It is an honour for me to be given the responsibility as manager of this wonderful club and something I am very excited about," Hammell said.
