Two men who helped select Gordon Boateng as the new boss of Bishop’s Stortford FC have admitted his appointment is a gamble, but one they hope will pay off for the club’s long term future.
While Boateng, 35, has held a number of roles at the Blues over the years as well as behind the scenes positions at clubs in levels above, he has never managed in the Vanarama National South.
John Turner and Mark Warwick are both on the board of directors that selected the man to replace Rod Stringer from the 50-plus applicants.
“Gordon came in with the best plan for the future. We interviewed seven good candidates. I thought three were exceptional, but Gordon’s profile fitted our ambitions as a board of directors,” said Turner.
