FOOTBALL: Hussey takes over as Holbeach United boss




Danny Hussey has returned to Holbeach United as manager.

The former Tigers defender is back at Carter's Park just over a week since his departure from Stamford.

He resigned as ex-Holbeach boss Graham Drury's assistant after two-and-half years due to work commitments.

Danny Hussey - who left his role as assistant to Stamford manager Graham Drury last week after two-and-a-half years - is back with Holbeach.
Danny Hussey - who left his role as assistant to Stamford manager Graham Drury last week after two-and-a-half years - is back with Holbeach.

However, Hussey was named as the successor to Seb Hayes who stepped down for off-the-field personal reasons.

Hussey met the Tigers' squad before their training session tonight.

Assistant manager Tim Cole and player-coach Adam Jackson will remain with the club.

Cole said: "We had plenty of interest in the job then the committee cut the list of candidates down to three names who were interviewed.

"Danny is a former player and local lad with good experience as a number two to other managers. Now is the right time for him to take over."

Jackson added: "We had a long list of candidates and, as a club, we felt it was important to keep a structure in place.

"Seb had a good rapport with the reserves and under-18s who came into the first-team squad.

"Danny will inherit a very good squad. This is also a good changing room in terms of the players supporting each other.

"Jamie Stevens was injured last week but he came along to help us, even though he was only filling the water bottles!"

Cole and Jackson were caretaker managers last weekend when the Tigers won 2-0 at Harborough Town in the Future Lions United Counties League Premier Division thanks to first-half goals by Spencer Tinkler and Will Bird.

Holbeach are back in action at Carter's Park on Saturday against Wellingborough Town, followed by the Lincolnshire FA Senior Trophy semi-final with Deeping Rangers next Wednesday.
