AMBITIOUS LINNETS SEEK OUT MOORE
FORMER Tranmere Rovers, Hartlepool United and Eastleigh boss Ronnie Moore is in the running to become King’s Lynn Town’s new manager.
Linnets chairman Stephen Cleeve sacked Ian Culverhouse’s successor Simon Clark last Sunday after failing to beat Step 5 side Histon in the FA Cup.
Youth team boss Neil Fryatt and club development manager Robbie Back oversaw a 7-0 win in the replay but the experienced Moore, who attended the original tie, appears to be one of the frontrunners for the job.
“I’ve got a lot of people that are interested but the vultures have been circling for weeks as they could obviously see that things weren’t going well,” Cleeve told the Eastern Daily Press. “There are one or two people that I want to speak to. He (Moore) was at the (Histon) game and he is someone that I speak to regularly but there are logistical issues with that one.”
King’s Lynn took just four points from their first six league games under Clark having lost in last season’s play-off final with Culverhouse.
