Toolstation Western League First Division club Oldland Abbotonians are seeking applicants for the early appointment of a new first-team manager for the 2017/18 season.

The successful candidate will have control over the entire senior player development and operation of the Western League team and work closely with the management team of the Bristol Premier Combination reserve side.

The successful candidate will also be required to take a strong interest in overseeing and developing the relationship with the club`s junior section comprising two under-18 sides (Somerset Midweek Floodlit and Bristol Sunday Combination) plus fifteen other youth teams over various age groups forging their ongoing development into senior football.

A statement from the club management committee reads: “Following the resignation of Dale Dempsey in late 2016, team affairs were passed to two senior players on a short-term basis. With the season coming to an end we would like to gauge interest from both those within the club and external applicants to drive us forward on a permanent basis, the current caretaker-manager is fully supportive and has been encouraged to apply and set out a development plan.

“Having spent in excess of £70,000 on the ground since last May we have some of the best facilities in the local area and our own clubhouse with an enthusiastic committee of volunteers.

“Our aim is Western League Premier Division football as soon as possible whilst building a good grounding for our youth teams and we look forward to hearing from interested parties as soon as possible so that we may commence interviews”.
