Club Statement

The closing date for applications for the Manager's job was March 17th. The response has been good and the calibre of applicants high.

Several of the candidates are currently employed at other clubs but there are others in employment who may well have applied had the vacancy been announced in the close season.

With this possibility in mind, we have decided to delay making a permanent appointment until early May to ensure that every possible candidate has been given an opportunity to apply and has been considered.

Meanwhile, Ian Bogie, who is himself a candidate, will take over the role of Caretaker Manager for the final nine games of the season and Paul Thompson will assist him as Player Coach.

Derek Bell returns to his regular role of Chief Executive but will assist Ian as and when required.
