He was our manager from July till November this season before he was sacked after 13 games and 3 months without a win.The main contender for our job is Steve Davies.
Would be a popular choice. Local, did well at both Nantwich and Crewe and would nurture our outstanding young players. Not sure what he's been doing the last 12 months though.
He started off ok, but the warning signs about him tactically were there though when Bromley beat us 6-1 in August, he seemed to think we could all out attack teams at this level, plus he deployed a very slow possession based game which suited sides who were happy to sit back against us. We seemed to always have an error in us under him.
He had a very tough task ahead of him in the summer though when he only had 5 weeks to build a team off of no scouting reports, he also lost Josh Coulson, George Elokobi and Charlie Lee to long term injurys in early September last year and he never recovered from that as we spiralled down the league.
He had to go with us, but I do have some sympathy for the bloke as he had a tough ask.
The Crewe fans were grew to seriously dislike him though, after watching his teams for 3 months I can understand why.
Always struck me as a better coach than manager. Maybe the National League North and a new early start could help him though?
