Chairman David Newton has revealed applications for the Boston United manager’s were dropping into his inbox within minutes of Adam Murray’s resignation.

Murray quit in the wake of Saturday’s 3-2 home defeat to Brackley Town, which left the Pilgrims second-bottom of National League North.

A healthy number of applications have already been received ahead of Friday’s deadline. Despite a difficult 18 months for the club since losing in the play-off semi-finals, Newton says the interest demonstrates what a sought-after job it continues to be.

“Applications and CVs were dropping in within minutes of Adam’s announcement,” said the United chief.

“As usual with these situations we receive a mixture of applications from people with absolutely no experience at all to high calibre managers who want the job.

“Ideally the club needs someone with experience at this level and who knows this league. Hopefully someone who has had some form of success at this level and who has great contacts.

“If we can identify someone like that and at the right price we will be very happy.

“We are maybe not as big as we used to be and not as big as we want to be, but this is a big club at this level and it’s an attractive job for the right person.

“The club is keen to find someone with the right experience and qualities but who is also going to be here for a while. We do not enjoy chopping and changing our manager and hopefully we can appoint someone who will enjoy some longevity at the club.”
