Therefore we are now looking to start the interview process for his successor.
FC Lakeside has learnt very quickly that a certain criteria has to come with the successful replacement.

1: Northern senior league management experience preferred, however not completely essential if the right candidate still proves to be the right person for the role.
2. We are looking at appointing a management team, ie, Manager/coach, team admin and team linesman, team physio if possible.
3. A serious commitment to work constantly with communication of the FC Lakeside reserve team and club in general.
There are other areas of detail to discuss during the interview.
