When the vacancy for a Head Teacher arises the Deputy Head usually applies. However in the majority of cases a school, or academy should I say, rarely promotes from within.
In the same way, Lincoln City were in the same position when Gary Simpson left and an internal promotion in the form of Chris Moyses was made.
Let me say I believe Chris did an excellent job but even he realised you can’t manage a football club and run a business at the same time.
That’s why I like the appointment of Danny Cowley and his brother Nicky as manager and assistant manager at Sincil Bank.
Why? Here’s a list:
1.’Outsiders’ bring in fresh ideas.
2. The new management team do not know the players and therefore can be objective in any decisions relating to contracts or releases.
3. Danny and Nicky probably see it as an excellent career move and therefore will be highly motivated to succeed.
Everyone at SportsLinc wishes Danny and his brother the very best of luck and every success in their new posts.
We believe they will succeed.
