Stuart Gray Named Caretaker for Next Three Games

Stuart Gray Named Caretaker for Next Three Games

Burnley FC have announced that Stuart Gray will take over as caretaker manager for the next three games.

The first-team coach will be assisted by youth-team coach, Terry Pashley and club captain, Graham Alexander.

Assistant manager, Russ Wilcox has additionally left the club in the wake of Brian Laws' sacking yesterday.

Gray will now be at the helm for our games against Sheffield United at Turf Moor on New Year's Day this Saturday, Reading away on New Year's Day Bank Holiday Monday 3rd January and our FA Cup third round clash against Port Vale at home on Saturday 8th January.

The 50-year old has previously been manager at Southampton and Northampton, as well as having caretaker spells in charge at Aston Villa and Wolves.

Brendan Flood talking about the situation said:

"It's important that we now look forward and remain positive and firmly focused on our challenge for promotion.

"We believe we have a very good squad of players which is capable of winning these next three games. We now have in place a caretaker management team of experienced people who have been in this position before and are highly qualified to lead the team.

"And with the support of the fans we believe we have a very good chance of picking up six points and making progress in the FA Cup. It would be great if the supporters turn up in their numbers at Turf Moor on Saturday to show their loyalty to the club and backing for the players as we all show how much we want to succeed."

Well if they had made enquiries behind the scenes, they don't appear to have anybody lined-up unless they now want to interview some more candidates showing interest! Could be an interesting few days

With a game on Saturday and then again on Monday somebody has to be in charge and I think this is the right move for now. Who knows, win these three games and Gray might be in with a shout though I think he will only really be a stop-gap appointment.

The three wise men can do a job but Don’t expect miracles. The players attitude has to be right they let us down against Scunthorpe.

Agreed, let the Board take their time and appoint the right man. Please, please open the purse strings if necessary, the right manager will more than return the investment, and avoid accountants like the plague.
