Chance for quick re­venge as boss search goes on

Ormskirk Advertiser - - Student Life -

BURSCOUGH are hop­ing to ap­point a new man­ager in the near fu­ture fol­low­ing Tues­day night’s 4-1 ham­mer­ing at Charnock Richard.

Yves Zama gave the vis­i­tors an early lead be­fore Daniel Re­gan equalised for Charnock.

Cap­tain Carl Grimshaw then handed them the ad­van­tage be­fore half-time.

Re­gan and Grimshaw added an­other strike each dur­ing the sec­ond pe­riod as the heavy de­feat ended Lin­nets’ im­pres­sive run of three straight vic­to­ries in all com­pe­ti­tions, in­clud­ing wins at Boo­tle and high-fly­ing Run­corn Town.

The club posted an ad­ver­tise­ment for a new boss al­most one month ago as they seek to ‘move Lin­nets to the next level’ and at­tracted more than ten ap­pli­ca­tions for the role.

Cur­rent man­ager Dave Sut­ton who turned out more than 200 times for Hud­der­s­field dur­ing his play­ing ca­reer - ar­rived at Vic­to­ria Park as the club’s di­rec­tor of foot­ball in 2016 but took over the man­age­ment reigns less than a year later.

Sut­ton guided Burscough to the Macron Cup fi­nal last term as well as help­ing the club avoid back-to-back rel­e­ga­tions.

Lin­nets then started the new cam­paign slowly un­der his guid­ance but their up­turn in form was ended abruptly by Charnock to leave them 15th in the ta­ble af­ter 13 games played.

A club of­fi­cial con­firmed that af­ter re­cent in­ter­views, Burscough hope to make an of­fi­cial an­nounce­ment ‘very soon’ with Sut­ton re­vert­ing to his for­mer di­rec­tor of foot­ball role.

The cho­sen can­di­date will po­ten­tially ar­rive dur­ing a busy win­ter sched­ule for the club with 14 games sched­uled between now and the new year.

Sut­ton and Burscough have the chance to ob­tain im­me­di­ate re­venge against Charnock this week­end as Andy West­well brings his side to Vic­to­ria Park on Satur­day in the HSL Pre­mier Di­vi­sion.
