Stevenage FC Chairman Phil Wallace has agreed to let Robbie O’Keefe take on the managerial role at Biggleswade Town, whilst continuing as Academy Manager of the Club's Category 3 academy...
Wallace said, "Robbie believes he can do both jobs. I have been a chairman at that level for ten years and I am not so sure, since to be competitive as a manager it is almost 24/7 no matter the level.
However, Robbie was there for us when we needed him and it is only fair that we allow him to pursue this opportunity if he wants to take it on.
We will monitor it closely and if we think it is having an adverse effect on our Academy, then we will withdraw our consent. Meanwhile, we wish him well and hope he can deliver success on the pitch for them".
