Spartan South Midlands League

And Gunn, who took over as manager of the Molten Spartan South Midlands League Division One outfit shortly before the start of the season, says if he can help the side beat off relegation before he leaves, it will be one of his best achievements during his time in local football.
He said: “It’s within our hands to do it – there are still a dozen games to go.
“The whole ethos when we came to the club was to keep them up, and that’s the ambition between now and the end of the season. The target was always to stay up this season.”
Gunn admits he has no other immediate plans after he hangs up his manager’s coat, but admits it has been a tough season.
A statement from the club praised Gunn’s efforts.
“Jim stepped into the breach at the beginning of the season with only two weeks to prepare for the start of the season with a depleted squad of players. From the beginning it has been an uphill struggle as Jim had to hit the ground running with the help of Paul Warnecki.
“The committee would like to say a big thank you to Jim and Paul for what they have achieved at the club, putting teams out to fulfil the club’s fixtures throughout the season.
“They have given the club their time and committment from the word go.
“They were aware this was going to be a difficult task but did not hesitate in what was laid before them.
“The committee wish them both well and hope they will assist the club in some capacity in the future.”
The club is now on the lookout for a new manager. Anyone interested can contact firstname.lastname@example.org or ring 01280 816728.
