Weston-super-Mare AFC are now looking to appoint a full-time manager, preferably a player-manager.
The club say this will ensure that the manager has the required time to scout players, scout opponents and progress the squad and academy by offering more time to the training. A statement goes on to say:
The club is in a strong position. We have excellent training facilities with our 3G and access to the OxHouse gym for the first-team fitness and a great foundation with our academy.
We have appointed a physio who will be at the Optima Stadium full-time, a data analyst who has the access to PlayerTek and a great core of players who are more than capable of proving what they can achieve by bouncing straight back if the team are relegated.
All of this means that the role will be very appealing for our next manager. We have targets in mind for that role which will be discussed at interview.
We will appoint the right person before the end of the season and this will enable them to make the right assessment of the current players and give them the full close season to strengthen the squad.
