Diss Town currently interviewing candidates for vacant managerial position




Interviews are ongoing in Diss Town’s search for a new manager.

The Tangerines have been without a boss since Steve Eastaugh took the decision to rejoin higher-league Norwich United on June 14.

Discussions with candidates started last weekend, with more planned over the coming days as the Thurlow Nunn League First Division North outfit seek someone who will provide some ‘stability’.

Chairman Steve Flatman said: “We started talking to people last weekend and have had a full week of it since then.

“We have had a long list of applicants and with nobody sure as to when football might be back, we have the time to go through every application.

“Perhaps in the past the club has needed someone quickly and the appointment has been made straight away, but we don’t need to do that.

“The people we are discussing the job with are mainly ones that have applied for it.

“There has been quite a variety of people apply. Some are applications you always get, but there are some new names as well.

“We need a fresh injection and somebody that is going to give us some stability. We don’t just want someone who is going to be looking to move on after a year.”

Meanwhile, last week the FA met with Step 5 and 6 leagues, during which they outlined a number of proposals should non-league football be able to restart in August, September, October, November, December and January.
