Following his first session in Caretaker charge (Tuesday), Adam Quinn reacted in a positive fashion. "We’ve had a good session, similar to what we have been doing. I’m not planning on making any drastic changes, it is just a case of keeping things ticking over until a decision made on who the next manager is." He continued, "We have sat down as a group and had a good discussion about things. We have a lot of young lads and for many of them, this is the first time something like this has happened to them. The likes of Matty Wilson, Jarmo, Matt Thornhill have that valuable experience and they have rallied round really well and are helping the lads come to terms with things."
Looking forward to Saturday, and the trip to Bradford Park Avenue, a former club for the imposing centre back, Quinn reiterated the focus within the camp: "As a group we are focussed on Saturday and getting a positive result – and from a personal point of view, I can’t wait to experience things from a manager’s point of view and dealing with all that entails. Preparations ahead of the weekend are going well, it is highly unlikely we will have any incoming movements, but Thomas (Davie) and Kimarni (Smith) have returned to their parent clubs after their loan spells ended. The players we have left are a tight knit bunch though and are really looking to prove a point. They know it is a blank canvas for them again now and that they are going to have to impress whoever the new manager is, in order for them to stake a claim for a place and that sort of competition and competitiveness is a good thing for me to see."
"Now all I want is for as many supporters as possible to come along with us to take on Bradford, it’s a massive game for us and as one of the lads, I cannot express enough how much your support means to us as players. I know each and every player that walks out on Saturday will be giving you, the club their all, see you on Saturday!"
Updates: With Chairman, Richard Kane
Updates: With Chairman, Richard Kane
Chairman, Richard Kane hopes to have the new manager/ management team in place before the home double header against Gloucester City and Curzon Ashton (18th & 25th February) having spent the first couple of days sifting through applications and drawing up a short-list of prospective candidates.
"I’ve been impressed with the number of letters and emails I have received. There have been some very interesting candidates to think about and it has been a good challenge identifying the people that I – and the board want to talk to. What is vitally important is that the new man that comes in, understands what we are trying to build here and will compliment our standing in the community and help drive us on, on the field to work hand in hand with the community work off it."
Kane continued, "We have some talented individuals on the playing front, the new manager will recognise that – and although he will have the scope to put his own mark on things, I believe we are in a much better position now, than when Dom first took over." Richard closed, by imploring the Blue Army to attend the Holy Blues’ next game: "I would urge you to travel in good numbers to Bradford on Saturday, like I know you do, for a massive game for Trinity. Even with the upheaval, we have got to remain focussed on, as a minimum, preserving our National League North status, before kicking on and pushing ourselves up the league."
