Great Wakering Rovers chairman John Galley is flattered by the interest in the vacant manager’s post at Burroughs Park and has told fans he hopes to name the Ryman North club’s new boss within days.

The Rovers chairman told echo-news.co.uk: “After a meeting of the Great Wakering Rovers Committee members a shortlist has been comprised of more than 30 applications for the vacant manager’s role at the club. It was extremely flattering for our club to receive this many applications through our website, email, phone calls and social media and proves that Great Wakering Rovers is a respected club in the Ryman League.
“The shortlisted personnel have all got the ability to bring something different to the club and after an interview process taking place over the next two to three days we hope to be able to announce the new manager after this weekend when the committee will look at all of the information attained.”
