Forest Green identify new manager


Forest Green is closing in on a new manager, according to chairman Dale Vince.

Speaking on his weekly Zerocarbonista podcast, he told broadcaster Ian Collins that Rovers have identified the man to replace Rob Edwards, who quit the League Two champions, joining Watford last week: “We have identified the person we would like to offer the job to and are waiting for permission from his club to talk to him.”

With the new League One season due to start on July 30th, Vince insisted his club needed to act swiftly, he added: “We are taking a different approach because of our circumstance and the window to the new season has been shortened by the world cup this year, so we have less time to move, so we are going to have a quicker process.”

Vince admitted he had revealed a plethora of personal emails sent to his inbox:  “I don’t know what the club has had, but I have had probably like half a dozen emails from all kinds of people that are interested in the job.”
