FOOTBALL: Lilywhites all set to appoint
CALNE Town are hoping to bring their search for Ant Brown’s successor to a close by appointing their new manager tomorrow.
Brown left his position as Bremhill View boss at the beginning of last month and the Calne committee are due to interview candidates tonight after inviting applications since their former chief’s departure.
Lilywhites secretary Shaun Smith revealed current caretaker boss Simon Gardner, who has presided over three victories during his time in charge of Calne since stepping up from second string Wilts Calne Town, is in the frame for the permanent role.
“It’s been a few weeks now but we wanted to give people time to apply for the position,” said Smith.
“We’ve had some good applicants come in and we’re planning to interview on Thursday night – we’re hoping to be able to announce something by the end of the week.
“Since Simon Gardner’s been in charge, the guys have been giving 100 per cent for each other and the performances have improved – we’re certainly scoring more goals “Simon’s has shown his interest in the role and it will be good to get a new manager appointed.”
