Solihull based ......
Blue Square Bet North club AFC Telford United have announced that their new first-team manager is former England winger Andy Sinton.
The former QPR, Spurs, Wolves and England player was, until recently, manager of Ryman League Division One South outfit Fleet Town.
Sinton, who is based in Solihull, takes up the reigns for two years. He will be announcing his assistant-manager, who has good experience in the Blue Square North, over the next week or so.
Club chairman, Lee Carter said: “The recruitment process was very thorough and very intensive. We spoke to lots of people and took advice from lots of quarters.
“Both the club and the Trust, who were fully involved in the two- stage interview process, are certain that the process was as good as it could have been.
“The outstanding applicant had to be someone with excellent ability to organise a football team. They had to demonstrate a clear appreciation that their role as a figurehead at the club meant that they had to embrace the community and youth activities that we are involved in and are aiming to grow.
“The outstanding applicant had to come and prove that they or their management team had a good knowledge of people at this level, and what is required to get out of this league.
“They also had to be able to inspire and enthuse the football club as we have very much lost our spark. Their desire, commitment and work ethic had to shine through.
“Andy has ticked each and every one of those boxes with a passion, desire and determination that literally blew us away. I hope he will have the full support of everyone that cares for or has an interest in this football club.”
