Newcastle Benfield have named Sky reporter Dan Salisbury-Jones as their new manager.
It is believed to be the first time a journalist has taken over at a football club.
Salisbury-Jones was sat in the stands to watch Benfield’s 2-1 defeat to Spennymoor and will take full control at training on Thursday.

Chairman James Rowe says the decision is temporary and will reassess the situation after Benfield’s final game of the season at Consett on Saturday.
