Lee Allinson is to leave St Albans City after being chosen as the man to replace Chris Nunn as manager of Biggleswade Town.
The Saints’ assistant manager will take up his new post at the Carlsberg Stadium with immediate effect, replacing Nunn who took the Waders from the South Midlands League up to the Southern Premier in his 12-year stint. And while he is relishing his first foray into management, he explained that Biggleswade were the only club he would leave Clarence Park for.
He said: “I got the call on Thursday from the chairman [Maurice Dorrington] to offer me the job.
“I spoke to my Dad straight after in a very emotional phone call, and it was actually nice that he was very supportive in what I wanted to do. I feel that this is the right time and the right step to go into management and if there was one club that could take me away from St Albans, it was Biggleswade Town.
“I’ve absolutely loved my time here, the fans have been amazing, the players have been outstanding and working with my Dad has been great, I’ve really learnt a lot. I’ve come on leaps and bounds and for me hopefully I can now push-on on my own and move Biggleswade Town forward.”
