Cheltenham Saracens boss Ash Hill said he’s “staying on for now” at the Uhlsport Hellenic League Division One West side despite their 12-0 loss last weekend.

Hill has been in charge since managerial duo Ian Giles and Ryan Goodson stepped down at the start of November, and is yet to make his mind up whether or not he wants the job full time.

“I’m seeing more commitment, which is what I’m looking for,” said Hill. “We’re just trying to build a team that’s good enough to compete, so I’m staying on for now and just taking it game by game to see how it goes.”

Saracens host high-flying Fairford Town in One West tomorrow as they look to bounce back from their last game, and Hill is hopeful that they’ll show an improvement.

He said: “I didn’t see the 12-0 coming last weekend, but we didn’t have enough players and it was hard enough already because they were a good team. I wasn’t annoyed at the players who came because they showed me good commitment in turning up, so we just need to put it behind us now. Fairford are going to be class because they’re at the top of the divison, so we’ll show them the respect they deserve but we’ll also have a game plan that we need to stick to in order to get a result.”

Hill also gave an update on whether he’s managed to find an experienced assistant to help him manage the side, as he said: “I’ve had a couple of people asking, but I’ve not made my mind up yet because I’m talking to a few different people.”
