Chester’s interview process for a new manager has been concluded and it is believed the new manager could be appointed as soon as today.
The Chester Chronicle are reporting that the club has a choice of eight candidates, who were interviewed by chief executive Mark Maguire and board members earlier this week.
Among the potential new bosses, it is believed that Chester legend Graham Barrow and former Solihull Moors and Grimsby Town manager Marcus Bignot are the front-runners.
The shortlist also contained ex-Luton Town and Cambridge United manager Richard Money and former Leeds United boss Neil Redfearn.
Meetings are set to take place this morning to determine the final choice.
The Blues have been searching for a manager since September 6th after Jon McCarthy was sacked and the club has since confirmed it wanted a new boss in place before Saturday’s fixture against Maidstone. Player-manager Tom Shaw has been looking after the first team in the meantime.
