Kenilworth Town Seek Reserve Team Manager

A Warwickshire football chairman who spoke ambitiously of his ‘ten-year’ plan to see his side face Manchester United is appealing for help to realise that dream.

When Norman Stephens took over as Chairman of Kenilworth Town in June he outlined his desire to see the Midland Combination side reach the Doctor Martens League – which would allow them to enter the FA Cup.

However, the Gypsy Lane outfit have had disastrous starts to the season on both the first team and reserve fronts and now Stephens is hoping for some assistance.

He said:

"I did have a ten-year plan and we are still well on course for that because most of it involved things off the field, and we are progressing well with that.

"What we desperately need is a reserve team manager because at the moment I am having to do it myself, which is not good for me or for the players involved.

"I do not know enough about the game to be in charge of a side and the fact they have no proper manager is reflected in the total of one point from seven games that they have picked up so far.

"If anyone is interested in coming in and trying to turn the situation round then I would be only too happy to let them give it a go.

"The reserves are very important because when they are playing well they will be a feeder source for first team players."

And if somebody did come and make a success of the second string job then they could be promoted further as the first team have also had a torturous start.

He said:

"The first team have won only one of their seven matches and they are severely short of confidence but they have got good players and I am very confident that it will come good."
