Out of the Frying Pan and into the Fire

It's not always easy to follow the motives of some characters in football. Take Eric Whalley for example. He was until recently the chairman of Accrington Stanley.

Now he is being linked with a move to Chester City to work alongside their chairman Stephen Vaughan.

Whalley is hoping to sell most of his shareholding in Stanley to David O'Neil who has just taken over as chairman which would leave him in a position to invest in Chester.

Whilst Accrington are still plying their trade in League Two, Chester are now in the Conference.

Meanwhile Vaughan has said he is impressed with the standard of candidates who has applied for the managers job at the Deva Stadium.

"My ideal candidate would be someone who is an experienced manager and someone who is non-controversial," said Vaughan which is, no doubt, why he employed Mark Wright.

Amidst those linked by the Chester press to the job is former Hereford United favourite Jimmy Harvey who currently is at Forest Green Rovers.

Whilst Chester might be a bigger club than Forest Green, surely Harvey would aim to manage at a higher level and with a chairman who is viewed with more respect than Vaughan.
