Bowyer and McPhillips given more time
Rovers have this lunchtime announced that current caretaker manager Gary Bowyer and his assistant Terry McPhillips will remain in charge of team affairs until the end of January.
The deadly duo have been in charge of the first team for the last two matches and have securerd two victories, leaving them with a 100% record so far. But they were thought to be making way for a more established name once those fixtures were concluded.
But with the club unable to secure the permanent manager that they want, the decision has been made to let the youth development coaches carry on until the end of the month.
The club statement read - 'This decision follows discussions between the Owners, Directors and Global Advisor.
The club would like to take this opportunity to thank Gary, Terry and the rest of the staff for their sterling efforts over recent days which have helped produce two successive and important league victories.
The club's search for a new permanent manager will continue in earnest.'
With Shebby Singh announcing last night that the club are unlikely to be making any new signings this monthit probably comes as no surprise that the club would struggle to attract someone decent to the role - this probably winds up being the best call for the club to make.
But why not just give them the job? Honestly.
