Chris Symes has begun the process of rebuilding struggling Cornard United with the appointment of Paul Grainger as joint-manager.

But, as both admit, it’s going to take some time to turn things around at a club which has enjoyed just one victory this season, but suffered fourteen straight defeats in the Thurlow Nunn League First Division.

Symes had been battling on his own to keep Cornard afloat for most of the season, but decided last month that he needed help.

“The first person to make a genuine offer of help was Paul,” said Symes.

The two have known each other for several years, and previously were together at Brantham Athletic.

“Paul has a good knowledge of the game, and a network of young Ipswich-based players to bring in,” said Symes.

Grainger, who numbers Long Melford among the clubs he has previously managed, had been out of the game for a year.

He realises what a massive challenge Cornard face.

“When you are bottom, getting beaten heavily, and don’t pay, then a lot of players just don’t want to know,” he said. “We need to bring in new players, change the losing mentality, and once we do that and start to get results, players will be more willing to come here.”

Cornard had Grainger recruits Dan Stephens and Jamie Gregory making their home debuts in last Saturday’s defeat by Fakenham Town, following a first appearance at Great Yarmouth Town the previous week, and more new faces are set to come in over the next few weeks.

Grainger is tapping into his contacts, and expects at least one new name in the line-up at Whitton United today, and is all set to issue a number of seven-day notices of approach.
