Of all names mentioned already my vote goes to Craig Elliot at Boston.

Sick of journeyman players and managers on the merry go round. Why get a bigger name manager that had success once with a club in league 1 but has since been hired and fired from 5 different jobs in the last 10yrs.

Instead get a winner from leagues below (Lincoln should know that), and all our previous best came as winners from below, Buckley and Hurst were nobody's till they came here (when I say nobody's, I mean managers on the up with proven records, but as yet unknown to us)

There's plenty out there that know only success and promotion, a la cowleys.

It would be a rapid rise for elliot, he was managing Shaw Lane a season ago!!!

But won 3 promotions with them in 4 seasons and left for Boston when they were 3pts off top with games in hand.

Now he's completely turned Boston round from a situation just like oirs currently. Want a bit of that.

Someone use to a budget as well and knows the lower leagues.

Not another Slade type.

If Fenty can't get an appointment right or do the relevant checks, clearly the Boston chairman can, and has an eye for a manager (Hurst, now Elliot), so if we poach their managers u know that the manager has been vetted by a competent chairman also.

Money talks, thing is does Fenty feel enough shame for the state the club is in to put it right regardless of personal cost to him, ie no more benign loans to sort out the excrement he has created.


Supporting the Mighty Mariners for over 30 years, home town club is were the heart and soul is and it's great to be a part of it.

All you have to do is look at the Cowley brothers for me and it's proof it works.

Let's get an upcoming fresh manager and not one that's been sacked a thousand times.

Or look at Bignoit as proof it doesn't?

McMenemy had been sacked by Doncaster.

Dave Booth appointed from within as was Woods and Rodger

There is NO right or wrong as to their background.

The only way to improve your chances of getting it right is to do thorough research and even then I bet the success rate wont be above 25%

Buckley had done an exceptional job at Walsall and was doing good things at Kettering when Town got him.

Don't know anything about this chap although his career does look impressive to date. The Lincoln example isn't really right though as they took a manager from above them in the same league.

He's only been managing at that level for a few months, to jump 2 divisions would be tough and I'd question whether his knowledge or contacts at this level would be good enough at the minute but certainly one to keep an eye on IMO.
