Town begin search for a new manager

Kenilworth Town are looking for a new first-team manager after the resignations of Wayne Goss and Rich Kay.

The duo, along with Chris Turner, left the Stratford Alliance Premier Division side last week following an indifferent start to the campaign.

The club resigned from the Midland Combination last year due to financial reasons, but were expecting the management team to spearhead a title challenge this season ahead of a return to the Midland Combination structure in 2012/13.

However, with the Kenilworth concentrating much of their efforts on raising funds to complete a new clubhouse, it appears Goss and Kay were unhappy with the speed of the club’s rebuilding programme. Club secretary Matthew Sewell said it was disappointing to lose the management team in the manner they did, but said it was a chance to bring in someone who shared the club’s vision for the future.

“They didn’t think we could get to the Midland Alliance in the near future and wanted to move on,” said Sewell.

“We’re now looking for a new management team to come in, who will push the club on, and anyone interested should contact myself on 07780 995820 or chairman Andy Brooks on 07988 131478.”

Sewell took temporary charge of the first team for their Coventry Charity Cup encounter at Leamington Hibs on Saturday.

Hibs won 3-1 after extra-time to move into the third round, with Matt Lendon netting the Town goal.

Meanwhile, Town’s reserves lost 4-1 to International in Division Three of the Stratford Alliance. Vlad Polak scored the Town consolation.

There was better news for Town’s ladies, who gained a well-deserved 5-3 victory over Premier Division leaders Tamworth.

Bonnie Mountford scored four of Town’s goals, with Tash Devis completing the scoring.
