Corby Town chairman Stevie Noble says he has already received some “interesting” applications for the vacant manager’s job.
The Steelmen parted company with Tommy Wright last Sunday, 24 hours after they had lost 2-1 to bottom side Ilkeston.
Corby themselves dropped to the foot of the Evo-Stik Northern Premier League Premier Division on Monday night as they were beaten 3-0 at Hednesford Town in what was Eddie Johnson’s first match in caretaker charge after he stepped up from being Wright’s assistant following the previous manager’s departure.
Johnson is set to take charge again for Saturday’s trip to Mickleover Sports.
And Noble expects the caretaker-boss to remain at the helm for the two home games against Frickley Athletic next Wednesday night and Nantwich Town a week on Saturday as the club sift through the various applications.
“There have been some interesting ones that have come in already,” Noble said as he delivered an update on the situation.
“There have been a lot and when it comes to the interviewing process, that will probably take a week anyway.
“We want to give Eddie a chance to stake his own claim but he is aware of the situation.
“He will be in charge for Saturday and more than likely for the two home games that follow that.”
