Dorchester Town In Talks With Potential New Manager

DTFC new

1:26pm 2nd September 2014

Dorchester Town Football Club say they're in talks with several experienced managers after the departure of Phil Simkin and not all the candidates are local.

The Board of Directors says there's no definitive timescale to appoint a new first team manager - and they're looking at all available options as a significant number of candidates have already come forward and shown an interest.

Assistant Manager Stuart Heath has been handed the role of interim Head Coach.

Club Chairman Matt Lucas said; "There has been a lot of interest already from very experienced managers both local and not so local. We continue to have contact with some interested parties already and have others to speak to in the coming days. However, there is no definitive timescale on an appointment as we are carefully examining all of the options available to us".

He continued; "As soon as we have identified the right person to take the club forward, we will make an announcement. I am also extremely pleased that caretaker-manager Stuart Heath has said he would like to stay on at the club in a coaching capacity".

A fans forum is being held on the 29th September at 7pm at the bar at the Avenue Stadium.
