Matty Holmes has committed to another season at the helm of Wimborne Town – and admitted attention already turns to the second campaign in Southern League South from tomorrow.
Holmes has agreed to remain as Manager at Cuthbury until the end of next season after a third historic year in a row at Magpies since taking the job in May 2016.
This season, the 49-year-old, who played in the Premier League for West Ham and Blackburn in the mid-1990s, guided Wimborne to their highest ever league finish of 14th in the seventh tier of English football. However, despite this success, Holmes said he could easily walk away from his role if the club failed to match his ambitions.
He told the Daily Echo: “I spoke to Graham Bell and the board two weeks ago and we discussed the two scenarios of if we went down or stayed up.
“I have to look after my situation with what we do and everything was very positive.
“Graham has been unbelievable for this football club and he is such a positive man. He loves Wimborne and with him around there is a huge attitude to want to succeed and go places.
“You need to get sponsors in and do this and that on the financial side but we are competing and for me, that was really important.”
