Shirtliff happy to take back seat

Although he would take the job on his own, Peter Shirtliff is willing to work alongside a new manager at Field Mill

"I know Paul Hart very well and I also know John.

"I don't blame them for wanting the job but I still want it and I think it's nice that they recognise that I should have a chance to make it mine first.

"But I came here as assistant manager and if whoever took charge and wanted me to stay on in an assistant role we would sit down and talk about it."
