WE CAN confirm that Manager, Tommy Wright, has turned down an approach from Vanarama National League North rivals, Darlington.
An approach was made to the Chairman at 8.00pm on 16/10/2017 asking for permission to speak to Tommy about the vacant Managers position.
The release compensation figures contained within the Manager's contract were revealed to Darlington and they fully understood that this was a condition of permission prior to any contact.
We as a club are delighted that Tommy has shown his commitment to the club by opting against entering in to any discussions with Darlington FC, without hesitation.
Despite playing more than 70 times for Darlington, winning the FA Trophy in the process, Wright was not lured by sentiment and is fully backing the Boro project he is part of and has opted to stay as our Manager on his two-year rolling contract.
Chairman, Lee Thorn said: “Tommy is more than a first-team manager, he is the glue that holds this club together.
“As a club we can see why Tommy was a name they were interested in, but we are delighted that he has opted against talking to them regarding the role.
“He is our manager and is part of something exciting that we are building here at Nuneaton. The club has some talented players and Tommy can see the potential.
“He has backed the club with his commitment and it would be brilliant if the town could back him – starting on Saturday at home to Stockport County.”
The news comes at a welcome time for a Nuneaton Town side that returned to winning ways at the weekend with victory, ironically, over Darlington.
