THE SILLS and Betteridge Lincolnshire League is in the hunt for a new manager for its representative side, following the departure of Glen Maddison.

Maddison is now unable to take charge of the side, having left Boston United Reserves for United Counties League Premier Division side Sleaford Town.

The league is now looking to fill this voluntary role.

The new boss will have the pick of the cream of Lincolnshire’s amateur players as he, or she, tries to improve on the national Inter-League Cup quarter-final place Maddison achieved at the first attempt.

Boston-based players Andy Hewitt and Liam Ogden were among those who turned out for the Yellowbelly side last season.

Maddison and his assistant Allan Ross were thanked for their efforts at the league’s annual meeting last week.

“Every league we beat in that competition was a step seven league, which is quite an achievement,” explained general secretary Paul Birkitt.

“With Glen’s guidance, the team almost reached a national semi-final.”

Anyone interested in the post should send their CV to league chairman Keith Weaver, 22 Grainsby Close, Lincoln LN6 7QF or email keith.weaver@ntlworld.com
