Saints target new manager

St Neots Town has held discussions with the man they want to become their new manager.

Current boss Matt Clements confirmed to the Hunts Post this afternoon that Marc Abbott is their target to become his successor.

Abbott is currently manager of mid-table Thurlow Nunn League Premier Division side Haverhill Rovers.

Saints could themselves be playing at Step 5 next season after owner Lee Kearns admitted they are considering voluntary relegation from the Southern League at the end of the current campaign.

Clements, who is moving into a director of football role at the Premier Plus Stadium, said: “We’re keen to bring in a young manager with excellent coaching ability and Marc fits that bill as far as we’re concerned.

“We have done things properly and put in an approach to Haverhill.

“I had a chat with him earlier today and he is obviously aware of our interest in him.

“There is nothing more than that to report at this stage although it goes without saying that we would very much like him on board at St Neots Town.”
