Newark and Sherwood United Football Club reveal they have received applications for their open manager position from as far away as Spain and Australia
An open football manager position has attracted international interest, according to a member of the club’s committee.
Newark and Sherwood United have received two applications from Spain and one from Australia in response to their advertisement for a new manager.
The position became vacant after the club parted ways with previous manager Jonathan D’Laryea, who last season led the side to county cup success when they won the Nottinghamshire FA’s senior trophy.
This season sees the side who are known as The Highwaymen sitting in 16th position out of 18 in the step five United Counties League Premier Division North competition.
The committee decided that a change in management was necessary to improve the team’s performance.
“There have been some really impressive applications which we have now shortlisted,” said the club’s commercial manager, Jed Wright.
“We look forward to interviewing the shortlist next week.”
