FOOTBALL: I can't do job full-time after all, admits Elkins
8:42pm Wednesday 30th October 2013 in Local Football
Didcot Town’s interim boss Gary Elkins says he is no longer interested in becoming the Calor League Division 1 South & West club’s permanent manager.
Earlier last week, Elkins, who stepped down as boss last season, indicated he was keen for a second spell after Andy Wallbridge resigned.
However, he admitted that he let his heart rule his head.
“Once I had got my sensible head on in the cold light of day, I realised that my personal circumstances mean I can’t do it,” said Elkins.
“But I’m still willing to help the club in any way I can.”
The Railwaymen have advertised the job, and applicants had until yesterday to apply.
Elkins and Wallbridge’s assistant Paul Davis, who is interested in taking the job, will run the team until a successor is found.
