Stevenage FC can confirm they are in talks with former Manchester United, Spurs, West Ham and England international Teddy Sheringham with a view to him taking over as Manager next season.
Chairman Phil Wallace said ‘Graham Westley’s agreement ends on 31st May and his team couldn’t have done more from a results viewpoint this season, but Graham’s been Stevenage manager for 8 of the past 12 years and that’s a long time at this level of football. Our board doesn’t dishonour contracts at a whim, so even when things weren’t going well in 2014, we kept the faith and our faith was rewarded by results in 2015.
"Graham may now have some football offers coming in that we wouldn’t be able to match and I know he has some opportunities outside of football to consider. Despite the utmost respect and appreciation I have for everything he’s done for Stevenage FC, sometimes you have to accept that a business needs to change to refresh itself and evolve. Sometimes that means management, sometimes it means owners and sometimes it means both. Change inevitably brings risk and that can’t be avoided, but at some stage change in a football club has to occur if it’s been shown that attendances do not provide sufficient funds for a successful team."
