January 13, 2012 Maldon’s Flanagan Wants To Stay
Mike Flanagan wants to see out the season at the helm of Ryman League Division One North club Maldon & Tiptree.
The club’s caretaker-manager took over in November, following the resignation of joint-bosses Brad King and Glen Knight.
Since then the side have enjoyed a much-improved spell of form, culminating with Saturday’s 1-0 victory at home to Thamesmead and Wednesday night’s 2-0 win at Ilford.
In their last 11 league matches, Maldon have won five and drawn four, only losing twice to AFC Sudbury.
“I’m delighted for the players because their form has drastically improved,” said Flanagan, who has been told the job is “his to lose” by impressed chairman Ed Garty.
“I’m enjoying it and want to continue.
“In the first couple of weeks I didn’t know if I wanted all the aggravation and hassle, but since then I’ve been delighted with the way things have gone.
“And just as pleasing as the results has been the quality of our football. I’d certainly like to finish what I’ve started and see this season out. Then perhaps we could reassess things in the summer.”
