LOUIS Newman is set to be named the new manager of Ipswich Wanderers - and he cannot wait to get started.
Out of the game since September 2004 when he left Hadleigh United five months after winning the Suffolk Senior Cup at Portman Road, Newman will take over from John Clarkson at Humber Doucy Lane.
Just back from a three-week family holiday in the United States, Newman has had an interview with the Ridgeons League, Premier Division club.
There are a few minor details to sort out before tomorrow's annual general meeting when an official announcement is expected to be made.
“I am certainly one of the candidates,” said Newman today.
- 1 'This is all I've got' - Woman fighting to keep home where mum died
- 2 Teen fractured taxi driver's skull in 'shocking display of violence'
- 3 'From one family business to another' - Cattermole's changes hands
- 4 Woman bit dog owner during dispute over not picking up mess
- 5 Teen taken to hospital with serious injuries after Ipswich crash
- 6 Felixstowe man to star on small screen with converted Mini Cooper
- 7 10 Suffolk celebrities and where they went to school
- 8 Five forgotten Ipswich music venues and what they are now
- 9 Cocaine dealers involved in 'Bash' drugs line in Suffolk are jailed
- 10 Ipswich bus fares to increase after 'significant' drop in usage
“I met the chairman last week, and there have been other people interviewed.
“There are a couple of things to sort out, but I have had a break and can't wait to get started again.
“There were other things I wanted to do when I left Hadleigh, but I found I had no more time afterwards than I had when I was doing the job.
“The previous Wanderers manager ran things his way, and it will be back to basics now.
“There are bags of potential at Ipswich Wanderers, and with ambitious plans to improve facilities at the club you could say it is a sleeping giant.”
Last season Wanderers finished tenth in the Premier Division, reached the final of the Ridgeons League Cup and were beaten in the last 16 by eventual FA Vase finalists AFC Totton.
