HUNGERFORD Town are poised to name Ian Herring and Jon Boardman as joint caretaker managers today following Bobby Wilkinson’s resignation followng Saturday’s 3-2 defeat at Welling United.
Two of the club’s most experienced players will be charged with keeping things steady until a final decision is made.
The 33-year old Herring has been with Crusaders for five years after his earlier stints with Swindon, Northwich Victoria and Eastleigh among others, while 36-year old former Crystal Palace, Rochdale and Dagenham and Redridge defender Boardman has been a fixture in the side for six years.
They will take charge of training on Tuesday night as Crusaders prepare for their first game in the post-Wilkinson era at home to Gloucester City and Bank Holiday Monday’s trip to Poole Town.
