PAUL Holleran will remain in charge of Leamingon Brakes despite the club dropping out of the Football Conference.

The club’s board of directors have announced that Holleran is the man they want in charge to spearhead ambitions for a quick return from the Southern Premier League.

Discussions were held last week in wake of reports that Holleran may throw in the towel following last Saturday’s 2-2 draw that consigned Brakess relegation.

But chairman Jim Scott believes the current boss is the right man to take the club forward.

He said: “Following discussions with Paul it became clear that whilst he was hugely disappointed at the club’s relegation he still retained the passion and desire to want to take the club forward.

“We reviewed the season as a whole and what lessons could be learned from the campaign and discussed options on the way forward.

“Those talks centred on budget, staff and players, training facilities and style of play.

“Once those discussions had been held the board were unanimous in our decision that he remained the right man for the job.

“We believe that he has done an excellent job for the club over five plus years with the highlight being promotion as Southern League Premier Division champions.

“He significantly over performed in budget terms in achieving that. We also took account that he retains full support within the dressing room.

“The club has been founded on the bedrock of stability and we firmly believe that by retaining Paul we give ourselves the best chance moving forward.”
