“Under Jason and Paul (Maitland) the club approached me and asked me to be manager. Obviously I was aware of the parameters and the conditions I would be working under then.

“That’s obviously changed now. The new manager may come in and may have somebody he believes can do a better job _ that might be the end of me from that basis.

“Or, a new manager might have his own ideas on how a reserve team should be run. I might at that point think it’s not for me.

He added: “I really can’t comment in terms of my future, where I am going to be, or what will be decided.

“We will just have to see what happens really.”

The reserve side, who were promoted last term, are currently ninth in the league table at present, having finished the season with 64 points from their 40 league games played.
