.....League neighbours Whitehaven Amateurs – as manager. Reds have given Whitehaven permission to speak to the former Carlisle United, Newcastle United, Crystal Palace and Hull City ace, who signed a two-year deal at Borough Park last year after his release from npower League Two Wycombe Wanderers.
“We want the new manager to bring something to the club, improving not just the team but the structure of the club, and give the younger section a player pathway,” said Bill Robson, Amateurs spokesman.
“Stuart seems very interested, and hopefully over the next few days we will see how it pans out.”
Green hails from Whitehaven and played for Marchon, the forerunner to Amateurs, as a junior before launching his career on the pro scene.
He was keen to return home last year after a fifteen-year career in the game, and at just 30, he signalled he had no plans to drift in to retirement.
His opening season with Reds was dogged by injury, however, ankle ligament damage bringing an early end to his campaign.
Amateurs have been looking for a new manager since ex-Reds striker Martin Harris stepped down at the end of last season.
Harris first managed Amateurs in the late 1990s and returned in May 2009, to replace John George, who quit for family reasons.
