Uppingham need new boss for Premier Division campaign

Uppingham Town chairman Richard Kendrick is looking to build on a super season for the Tods Piece club after stepping up his search for a new first team manager.

Town toasted a terrific campaign under the guidance of Paul O’Berg who led Uppingham back into the Peterborough League Premier Division.

They also completed a memorable double after winning the Leicestershire Intermediate and Peterborough Challenge cup competitions.

And Kendrick is now keen to find a replacement to carry on the good work done by O’Berg in his one season at the helm.

Kendrick said: “We have had a successful season to get back in the Premier Division which is where I believe the club belongs.

"We have got a settled and committed squad who all want to stay together. It's the best squad we've had for a little while.

"We have had a great season, but next season is what really matters now.

"Uppingham is a club with a lot of history and sometimes you have to wait a while for success to come along.

"It's like a little cycle which comes around. We're just at the beginning of that cycle now and are looking for someone to continue that challenge.

"It's an attractive position and there's lot on offer this year. We want someone who can also bring their own ideas into the club and put their own stamp on the team.

"We have got a younger squad now with several coming through from the reserves so as a club we're in a good position.

"We just need somebody to take it on who wants a challenge of moving a club forward.”
