New manager turns down Lincoln Ladies role

The new manager for Lincoln Ladies has decided he will remain with his current club rather than make a transition to Lincoln.

As previously reported, after the departure of Glen Harris as the football club’s manager, ex Charlton manager Keith Boanas (53) was approached for the role.

He is currently the Manager of Estonia’s national women team.

He was appointed and due to start this month, however he has decided to remain in Estonia with the country’s ladies team.

Chief Executive of Lincoln Ladies Luke Negus-Hill said: “Whilst we had lengthy discussions with Keith nothing was set in stone, and it came to light that his Estonia role was going to be difficult to leave.”

The club is in talks a new manager, which is looking hopeful to be an appointment.

The new manager has to work notice, and plan an exit route first, so the announcement of who has been picked is expected at a later date.

Luke Negus-Hill added: “We have acted quickly and discussions with our new appointment have gone extremely well and I look forward to working with them in the very near future.”
