IN BRIEF | John Ward Not Sure Management is For Him

One of Walsall Football Club's managerial trio John Ward has met with the press ahead of this weekend's Emirates FA Cup Second Round clash with Chesterfield, and effectively ruled himself out of the running to take over the reins from former manager Dean Smith, who left the club to join Sky Bet Championship side Brentford earlier this week.
One of Walsall Football Club's managerial trio John Ward has met with the press ahead of this weekend's Emirates FA Cup Second Round clash with Chesterfield, and effectively ruled himself out of the running to take over the reins from former manager Dean Smith, who left the club to join Sky Bet Championship side Brentford earlier this week.

Ward, who is joined at the helm by Head Physio Jon Whitney and Goalkeeping coach Neil Cutler is quoted as saying; "I'm not sure management is for me anymore."

As a player, Ward spent the bulk of his career as a forward at Lincoln City where he scored more than 100 goals between 1970 and 1979. He also had spells at Watford, Grimsby Town and Workington.

The sixty-four year-old, who won promotion with both Cheltenham and Bristol City, initially joined the club to work closely with then first-team coach Richard O’Kelly, and academy manager, Neil Woods, to develop young players for the senior side, and is expected to return to a similar role once a new manager is in place.
