CHIPPENHAM TOWN: 'I'm not after the Chippenham job', says Fey
EX-CHIPPENHAM Town assistant manager Richard Fey has rubbished rumours linking him with the newly-vacant manager's job at Hardenhuish Park.
Fey joined the Bluebirds last season as Nathan Rudge's number two but left the club at the start of the summer to launch his own Southern League management career at Bridgwater Town.
The Bridgwater boss is a close friend of Rudge, who resigned as Chippenham manager on Wednesday morning, and says that any talk linking him with the job is well wide of the mark.
“I don't know where the talk has come from but I've got no intention of applying for the job at all,” Fey told the Gazette & Herald.
“I'm of the philosophy that if the manager goes, the assistant goes too, and if Nath had decided to leave during last season, I would have followed him.
“I learnt a lot at Chippenham last year and I also learnt a lot from Nath. There are some good people behind the scenes there.
“Chippenham is a big club but I'm happy at Bridgwater – we've got a three year plan to try and get promoted and I want to try and make us as big as Chippenham, if not bigger.”
Fey's Bridgwater have won their opening two games of the season in the Calor League Division One South and West.
