New Deal For Leiston Managerial Team

Ryman League Premier Division club Leiston have rewarded manager Glenn Driver and head coach Tony Kinsella new three-and-a-half year deals.

The duo, who took Leiston reserves to a sixth-placed finish in the Thurlow Nunn League last season, took over the Blues hot-seat from Richard Wilkins in May and haven’t looked back since.

Their attractive, free flowing football is easy on the eye with the locals responding in numbers as attendances continue to improve.

But it’s not just about their first-team exploits, the club are so keen to keep hold of the pair, it’s because of their stamp on the club from top to bottom, as chairman Andy Crisp explains.

“To secure the services of Glenn and Tony is fantastic news for the club,” he told the Green `Un. “As chairman it’s been a little unfortunate that over the last few seasons we have had quite a few managerial changes, so with these agreements now signed it brings some stability to the club which of course is very important when discussing things such as three to five-year plans and contracts.

“Glenn and Tony have a clear vision in terms of a footballing structure they want for this club and their commitment to us will include working with the youth and reserve teams, not just the first team.”

Leiston continue to be challenging for the Ryman Premier play-offs and have enjoyed long runs in the national cup competitions and look set to record a best-ever finish at Step 3.

Driver is excited about the future at Leiston: “To say I’m happy about extending my stay here is a understatement,” he said. “This club is in my heart and I’m grateful that the chairman and the Board feel they can put their trust in myself and Tony for another three-and-a-half years.

“We are building for the future, signing young players who we feel we can develop”.
