Gloucester City have given an update on the early stages of their search for a new manager.
The National League North side have had the following to say:
Following the news of Mike Cook’s departure, the club has been inundated with applications for the now vacated manager’s role.
Whilst naturally focus is on the here and now, we must also be looking ahead to next season with the club preparing for the change to a full time manager and different operating model. This change was always planned to happen at the end of the current season, ready for our return home to the City.
We are pleased with the calibre of candidates showing interest and we can confirm that the interview process has already begun. With the Buildbase FA Trophy game this Sunday, we are confident of having a new manager in place for this fixture ahead of a very busy and important Christmas period.
We would like to express our thanks to everyone that has applied for the role so far. One of the key requirements is that the new manager must have worked in a full time club in the National League as a minimum.
Gloucester City is a fantastic club with big ambitions, a new stadium that is about to rise with a committed fanbase that have travelled all over and outside of the County to back it. The successful candidate will need to be someone who matches our ambition and can lead the club forwards.
