Fenlon handed Hibs job

Scottish Premier League side Hibernian today announced they had appointed Pat Fenlon as manager on a two-and-a-half-year contract.

Fenlon, 42, arrives from Republic of Ireland side Bohemians and succeeds Colin Calderwood, who was sacked on 6 November following only 12 wins in 49 matches in his year in charge.

"I'm really excited by the prospect," Fenlon told the club's website.

"Hibernian are a club with a rich history and proud traditions," added Fenlon, who won five League of Ireland titles and three cup competitions during the past nine years in his homeland.

Edinburgh outfit Hibs finished a disappointing tenth last season and are currently ninth in the Scottish top flight.
