The world’s fourth oldest club are thought to have had a number of applications from managers with experience at Northern Counties East League level.

Tigers have put out a statement specifying their requirements for the man to replace Jon Kennedy.

“Worksop Town Football Club are looking to recruit an experienced manager with a proven track record in non-league football at steps 4, 5 or 6 and above,” it said.

“Essential to the role is the fact we require a very minimum of an FA level 2 coaching badge.

“The manager will be an integral part of the club’s structure and work comfortably alongside a management group to achieve our long term goals.”

The club’s decision making committee want to attract someone who can help lead Tigers back to the levels of football they enjoyed before a 2014 voluntary two-division.

“We require a highly focused individual to restore the club to its former glories on the pitch,” the job advertisement read.

“As a representative of the cub we are looking for someone with great communication skills, along with a pro-active attitude towards learning and to developing others.

“The successful candidate will have an extensive knowledge of non-league football and be able to present a vision of what an exciting style of play means to them for the upcoming season 17/18, whilst also demonstrating a constructive and thoughtful outlook on football management.”
