Chatham Town manager Kevin Watson says he will not rush into appointing a No.2

By Luke Cawdell

Chatham boss Kevin Watson has yet to choose a new No.2.

But the Chats manager hasn’t been short of offers. He said: “I haven’t brought anyone in yet and would be naive to just rush into it.

“A few people have expressed an interest but it’s about getting the right person.”

Watson was left with a void in his backroom team after Keith Levett’s decision to stand down as assistant manager with the Ryman League, North Division club.

Watson wants someone who can mix coaching with managing – something that not everyone can do. He said: “I do need someone that can do the coaching side as well as being an assistant and that’s not easy to find.”

Watson currently has Terry Groom and Barry Bell on his coaching team.

He said: “I’m not going to rush into an appointment. I can cope for a while as Terry and Barry do a good job but I do want to bring in someone. There are a few people that I have got in mind.

“Knowing someone from a distance can be different to working with them closely.

“You have to seek each other’s opinion and trust each other and have someone that can also have the players’ ear when you are not around."
