Mick Catlin has been unveiled as Gosport Borough’s new manager.

Catlin returns to the club, having previously left in January of this year and will replace Alex Pike who left the club last Monday afternoon.

He has had previous spells at Privett Park as assistant manager to both Alex Pike and John Robson and is also a former player. He has also been in charge at Andover, Wick, Fleet Town, and Chichester City.

Club chairman Iain Sellstrom revealed there had been considerable interest in the job but that Catlin was the obvious choice. He said;

“There were 14 applications for the position, including some very interesting ones. But Mick knows the club, is under no illusions as to what he has to work with, has in depth football knowledge and contacts. We decided he was the right fit for us”.

“He knows the club, knows the people and players involved and given our circumstances at present, this was always an advantage. I look forward to working with him” Sellstrom concluded.

Catlin has yet to announce who will comprise his backroom team and is likely to announce this in the near future.
