HE HAD an ex­cel­lent ca­reer as a player and now Jimmy Bullard is set to take his first steps in man­age­ment with Non-League Leatherhead.

The 37-year-old for­mer Peter­bor­ough, Wi­gan, Ful­ham, Hull, Ip­swich Town and MK Dons mid­fielder has been ap­pointed man­ager of Ry­man Premier Di­vi­sion strug­glers Leatherhead.

Tan­ners chair­man Richard Brady said: “This will be his first ap­point­ment as a man­ager – a ca­reer he is pas­sion­ate about pur­su­ing.

“Jimmy has gained a wealth of ex­pe­ri­ence about a va­ri­ety of man­age­ment and coach­ing tech­niques as a player and is look­ing to bring the best of th­ese ex­pe­ri­ences to Leatherhead, cou­pled with a very clear phi­los­o­phy in terms of how he wishes his team to play.”
