first_imgDanny Lennon has been appointed as acting head coach of Airdrieonians as manager Eddie Wolecki-Black recovers from a stroke.The former St Mirren and Cowdenbeath boss has been out of work since leaving Alloa earlier this season and will step into the role until the end of the current campaign.Wolecki-Black fell ill at half-time during his team’s win over Cowdenbeath on March 5 and was taken to hospital in Kirkcaldy.Lennon told the club’s website: “No-one would want to come in to a job in these circumstances but all I want to do is try to continue the terrific work Eddie has done at Airdrieonians until he recovers. “Eddie is a close friend of mine and we share the same football philosophy.“It was very important to me that I had his blessing to come in and I know I have that now.”Airdrie currently sit in fourth place in League One, level on points with fifth place Albion Rovers.Chief executive Iain King added: “With eight games remaining as Eddie recovers, though, we felt a more experienced figure would help our coaching staff in the gaffer’s absence. “Danny is someone Eddie has the utmost regard for and he knows the club are in good hands for the remainder of the season until he returns.”last_img
