Braintree Town chairman Lee Harding says the club are still receiving high-calibre applications for the position of Iron manager and they will continue to review them before making a decision over who will be their new permanent boss, report the Braintree & Witham Times.
Hakan Hayrettin is in caretaker charge at the moment and will lead the side when they head to Barnet in the FA Cup fourth qualifying round on Saturday, but it is only a temporary appointment at the moment following the departure of Brad Quinton two weeks ago.
Hayrettin has made no secret that he would welcome taking the position full-time if given the opportunity and a 4-0 Essex Senior Cup win followed by a 2-2 draw at Vanarama National League leaders Salford City last weekend strengthened his hand in that regard.
However, Harding said the quality of applications had been impressive.
He said: “We have had over 120 applications for the job, which is great.
“At the start of next week, we will look to start drawing up a short list and then make a decision whether we take it forward in regards to interviews.
“At the moment, Hakan is in the caretaker role and if we keep winning then I’m sure the board and the fans will be pleased by that.”
