SWINDON Supermarine chairman Jez Webb says the club have had plenty of interest in the manager's job after Dave Webb left the Webbswood last week.

Following their 5-0 defeat to Bideford Town over a week ago, Webb was relieved of his duties as first team boss, leaving his assistant Lee Spalding in charge on a temporary basis.

The Marine chairman has since advertised for Webb’s replacement on social media and says they have had a number of applicants already, the Supermarine chief expecting it to be a further week before a new man is appointed.

“We have been very specific about the next manager, what their experience and character will be,” said chairman Webb.

“We are already excited about the calibre of managers who have made applications.

“We know and fully understand where our club is today and recognise we can’t compete budget-wise with bigger clubs across the country.

“However, we have a lot to offer a manager who is looking to be part of something special.

“ We want an experienced manager but more importantly someone who wants to be in our special family.”

The Southern League West side saw their weekend clash with Yate Town postponed due to a waterlogged pitch at the Webbswood Stadium.

Marine are set to host Slimbridge tonight although that game could also be in jeopardy, as there was still standing water on the field yesterday afternoon.
