Magpies appoint Flack and Watt in joint charge
PENZANCE AFC have appointed former Truro City reserve team bosses Robin Watt and Steve Flack as new joint managers of the club's Carlsberg SWPL Premier Division side.
Flack, who turned out for Wimbledon's youth team and Woking during his playing career, had a short spell in charge of Division One West side Wadebridge Town last season before being replaced by Mark Menhinick in November.
Watt's most recent spell in management was at Jolly's Combination League side Wendron United, who he led to a respectable mid-table finish last season.
The duo take over the reins at Penlee Park from Gary Marks, whose second spell in charge of the Magpies was ended by mutual consent after a turbulent 2011-2012 campaign dogged by injuries saw the club narrowly avoid finishing in the bottom two.
