DANIELS chairman John Drewnicki hopes to have a new manager installed before Stamford’s league tie against Newcastle Town on October 15.

Former boss Simon Clark quit the club on Saturday, taking assistant Dave Frecklington with him to Worksop Town, and Drewnicki is determined that Stamford act fast to maintain their strong early-season run.

The Stamford chairman said interviews would take place early next week with an appointment soon after. He said he has already received enquiries he described as “encouraging” from managers interested in taking the helm at the Premeir Kitchesns Arena.

Experienced players David Staff and Daniel Barrett will take charge on Saturday with Youth Team Director Guy Walton also in the dugout.

Stamford host Coalville in one of their biggest games of the season this Saturday, the first round of the FA Trophy. Kick-off is at 3pm and Drewnicki called on vocal support to give the players a boost.

“Hopefully we will get a big crowd,” he said.
