I would have thought the sale of the club would need to have officially completed before a new manager is recruited and appointed?

Don’t worry lads the cowboy is coming in to apply for the Job

Seriously I hope they pick the right man/woman for the job

I wonder once the club sale has gone through they will do video conference calls for the interviews

I thought it had been completed and was going to be put in place at the end of the season, this has now happened so I assume the takeover has also.

GJ seems to be working on the basis that it's all in hand...

Surprisingly quiet here .. I expected postings with all the usual names to appear!!

Maybe a different face this time around without the usual flock of sheep following along behind is on the cards - I bet there are a few who wished they had hung on in a bit longer with the future now looking so bright!! :think:

I think it’s impossible to guess who the next manager could be this time. With a new owner and new ideas it could be anyone...

Having spoken to Graham and Hayden a few times, I’d highly doubt that the next appointment will be any of the entirely predictable names trotted out on this board time and again. I’d expect the calibre of applicants will be higher than in previous years as the club looks a more attractive proposition without Mr. Price’s austerity measures in place. However, with no real idea on projected incomings for next season it’ll be a challenge for GJ and HD to decide - and most importantly stick to for 9 months - a competitive playing budget for 20-21 to offer the new man

I know plenty of names have been banded around within their earshot; Tim Flowers, Gary Hackett, Paul Smith at Halesowen, Yates before he took the Stourbridge job and other less realistic ones too. Yet again, Hackett’s name jumps out from the list as he essentially ticks every box for us. Either way, it’s going to be the most important appointment they make all summer long and the sooner it’s made the better for everyone

Except for the fact that in 14 years at Stour and at this level he never achieved promotion.
I would liken him to Barry Powell in that season at KP, master cup tactician but couldn't organise a p**s up in a brewery in the league.

Not knowing any of the likely details of the budget and other issues it may now seem that as long as the club can offer a reasonable, realistic and importantly sustainable level of funds and coupled with the likely fallout in football that will happen, then there will be a number of good applicants. As ever the difficulty is making the right choice

I think the new owners should aim higher than GH - a “specialist in failure.”

A fair point Keith, the F.A. Cup runs probably should have garnered more success in the league although when you look at his last six seasons at Stour he did make the play-offs three times, in two different leagues, as well as his cup successes:

GH felt that he'd taken them as far as they could go last season when he left:
https://www.stourbridgefc.com/teams/610 ... 23360.html
With this in mind, is it as much as case of Stourbridge simply hitting their glass ceiling as a club at step three (no pun intended), a bit like Matlock, Buxton, Whitby, Rushall et al as it is Gary Hackett not being able to take them to the next level? Chances are he won't apply anyway as I believe he has applied before a few years ago and was turned down by SP

In these uncertain times and once hopefully this terrible global health emergency is over there may be a number of clubs that fail to survive. That could mean some clubs having to move leagues in which case player recruitment and to a lesser extent the managerial appointment becomes a further issue to consider. This is a mere distraction in the way of things but at some point the league structures will no doubt change in some form.

Just to keep you all in the loop guys...….hot off the press.

We have our man !!!!

We have now officially completed the process and have all signatures needed and informed all those who applied. We had a exceptional standard of CV land with some amazing names.

We want to thank everyone who applied, as some of the names, we would definitely consider in the future, even those we didn't interview.

It was a very tough choice as we have listened to what we all wanted and needed, and have selected who we think is the best fit right now and for our future.

Having been a stable and consistent full time manager previously (normally been at a club for 4 years at a time, which we think in this modern age of football is a credit to the man), and managed at various levels, and having won the FA trophy, along with many other achievements (along with having a great win ratio as a manager) and as a player was leading top goal scorer across all 4 top divisions, and achieved promotions to league one and championships levels with his clubs (naming just a few accolades for now). We felt the selected man was a great fit from his personality, CV, knowledge, work ethics, profile to name just a few elements.

Hayden is current preparing a full press announcement which we expect will be released tomorrow.

However for now, without naming names, we wanted to keep you all in the loop, to grow the buzz looking forward to Keys Park and to keep you abreast of what's going on.

Exciting times ahead.

PS - We wont say yes or no to any guesses......just a bit of fun for us all :)

We look forward to your guesses for now......as we do love to read your thoughts on here.

Very, very unlikely I know but Steve Cotterill please.
Out of work since he left Birmingham two years ago
Did an excellent job taking Cheltenham through the Leagues a few years back.

Haven't got a clue ... and if it is someone non-league from around the northern area then I probably won't have heard of him either, as has been the case for most that have gone before - so I will rely on Google and postings on here!

:think:

Thanks for the update Graham - all of the teasers point towards Andy Morrell I reckon. Goalscorer for a number of football league teams, won the F.A. Trophy with Wrexham, four years as manager of Wrexham and four with Tamworth. Pretty local I think (Nuneaton way?) so will have a good understanding of the lie of the land geographically for the SPLC. Looking forward to getting behind the new man and see what he puts together in the coming weeks

Might increase the chances of Duzza coming back when he's ready...

Sentimentality aside, Durrell would be a fantastic signing for step three, a real statement of intent. Stychey is another one well liked by Morrell so would hopefully be one on his radar seeing as he's local, an ex-player and has been a good step two player to boot for a while. What about Andy Bishop as assistant manager? Former Wrexham player under Morrell and a Cannock lad with management experience of his own at step two with Southport.

I reckon you’ve got it spot on cds. As well as what you have said, he achieved a League 2 promotion as a player with Wrexham and a League 1 promotion as a player at Blackpool.
I’ve seen many interviews with him in the past - he comes across as a really nice guy and he’s had plenty of success at levels higher than ours - Andy Morrell would be a great appointment for us.
