Thomas Baillie has confirmed he won’t be applying to become the sole manager at Kettering Town.

The club today (Wednesday) revealed they want to have just one first-team manager in place for next season, despite Baillie and Scott Machin leading them to a dominant Evo-Stik Southern League Division One Central title success last season.

The joint-bosses were both invited to apply for the one role and while Machin’s position on that currently remains unclear, Baillie was quick to confirm that he has now left the club.

“I have confirmed to the club that I won’t be applying to become the sole manager,” Baillie said.

“I think myself and Scott have worked well together. We were set a task to go and win the league and that’s what we have done.

“To be honest, I had already had conversations with various people and it was already in the back of my mind that I wouldn’t be there next season.

“I was offered a couple of opportunities during the last season but I wanted to see the job through at Kettering and I am pleased I did.

“I have a lot of interests outside of all this and I will explore those and also take the time to catch up with my wife!”
