Richard Money – new Swindon manager?


There have been rumors that Money has been linked with the job at the Division One club for a good few days now,  and some of our readers are saying the deal is almost done.

The former Liverpool defender was only appointed as Newcastle’s Academy chief a short six months ago, having previously been the manager of League One side Walsall.

But he’s done a terrific job at Newcastle and his young charges yesterday tore apart Carlisle United 6-1, so if he goes Newcastle will need to get another excellent coach in, and quickly, to replace him.
The Newcastle club is getting a little short of coaches because Keegan, McDermott and Sadler all left in early September, and have yet to be replaced.

Swindon Chief Executive Nick Watkins has confirmed the Club are down to the final two candidates in the selection process to take over as Manager of Swindon Town.

The news is that Watkins and Director Jeremy Wray will speak with Swindon Chairman Andrew Fitton, who’s currently in the United States. The plan is to speak with Andrew later tonight.

Watkins said:

“The two candidates we have been speaking to are currently in work,”

“We hope to be in a position on Thursday to speak to the Club concerned with a view to the selected candidate joining Swindon Town Football Club,”

“Throughout the process we have at all times remained committed to identifying the candidate who in our view can take this club forward and who over the next four to five years, can assist us is achieving our declared Championship objective.”

“The innate ability to manage, motivate, coach and inspire players, allied to first hand experience of operating at League One or Championship level as a minimum are essential attributes that the successful candidate must show.”

There is late breaking news that Richard Money has resigned from Newcastle this afternoon, which is not the official site so we cannot confirm anything.

But an announcement could well be imminent.

We’ll just have to wait and see.

    Its a big blow to the club he has done a brilliant job with the young players . Wonder who could be in the running to replace him .Should ask Shearer to take his first step into management . would be amazing and give Alan time to learn the ropes with the kids then step up for the big job .

    Gutted about this. But he probably sees it as a good career move. Managing a senior side instead of coaching kids.
    I just hope it doesn’t have too much of an effect on them as they have been playing brilliantly.
