The Ryman Football League
Published 27th April 2012
The club’s caretaker-boss has masterminded a real change of fortune for the Ryman League division one north outfit, since taking over in November.
He has steadied the ship and inspired some much-improved form, including eye-catching wins against the likes of top two Leiston and Enfield Town.
Now he looks likely to be confirmed as full-time manager in the next few days, following a meeting with chairman Ed Garty. The pair are set to meet next Tuesday.
“We’re both busy people and we haven’t really had a proper opportunity to sit down and talk,” said Flanagan.
“But we’re going to do that next week and hopefully we’ll get everything sorted.
“From my point of view, I want to continue and take the job on next season and the players are asking me about it all the time.
“I’ve enjoyed it and feel the team have got stronger and stronger.
“I’ve been really pleased with the players’ effort and their levels of improvement.
“We haven’t lost two games on the spin and four of the matches we did lose were against top sides.
“We’d certainly like to push on and do better next year, hopefully having a crack at the play-offs.”
