And the new manager is…………………..

You didn't really think I was going to be first with this did you? Here is todays article on Vitals, doing well on News Now as well it might with that headline, yesterdays effort is still at number one which is gratifying given that the new weekly Echo is out today. Good luck to them. We've really missed our daily Echo and I'm not sure whether the weekly will sink or swim but I really hope it does well. I do feel even more "small town" without a daily local paper.

Not to be announced this week. Sorry about that.

Early risers may have heard Michael Hortin on BBC Lincolnshire concede that no announcement was expected just yet. Bob Dorrian had said that he hoped a new man would be in place if not in charge by the time City squared up to Cambridge on Friday.

However the Lincolnshire Echo’s website this morning stated that the club will be interviewing on Sunday morning. Earlier reports of the salary on offer are said to be wide of the mark with the Echo putting a figure of £50000 forward. This is understood to be for both manager and assistant though, assuming the new man will want that luxury.

According to the Echo the shortlist is Steve Thompson, David Holdsworth, Martin Foyle and, tantalisingly, A N Other.
