“I have received a number of enquiries regarding the post of First Team Coach following Ian Chapman’s departure. As I indicated earlier, I want to put this process on a professional footing and I am therefore posting an Application Form on the website. I would ask all who wish to be considered to complete and submit this form to me as soon as possible, whether or not they have already sent in a CV or other information.
In doing this, I do not want anyone to draw the conclusion that I am dissatisfied with the performance of the interim managers, and indeed I have made it clear that it will take a very special applicant to persuade me that he can improve on their performance. However, I will be giving full consideration to all applications.”
Applications will close next Sunday (4th November) and I expect a decision to be made by the following Friday.
