It's All Change At Oxford As CV's Roll In After Ross' Exit

Oxford City have confirmed they won’t rush replacing Ross Jenkins but says they have been inundated with CVs.

The club, who will be playing in the National League North next season, are unlikely to appoint until the second week of June and won’t start interviewing candidates until next month.

They are on the hunt for a new boss for the new season after Boreham Wood persuaded Jenkins to replace Luke Garrard last week.

Owner Justin Merritt is impressed by the number of applications since the news broke and told the club’s website: “It’s maybe a reflection on where we are as a club that so many people have already expressed an interest.

“Ross did a great job and showed what we could achieve on the pitch but we are building as a club with some really exciting things happening behind the scenes as well.

“The calibre of potential interest has been strong and we will now go through a thorough process to ensure that we get the right person to make progress in everything we do.”

This week, Oxford confirmed Andy Sinnott as their new chairman following the sad passing of Brian Cox.

“Brian gave so much to this football club and I am honoured to be asked to step up and try to continue the tremendous work that he did,” he said.

“The football club is in very safe hands with Justin Merritt as owner and we are ambitious to keep the same core values that he and Brian have always believed in: a successful, welcoming football club that sits right at the heart of the city of Oxford.

"To be asked to become chairman is a very proud moment for me, personally, and I am determined to repay the faith that the Board have shown in me by doing all I can to help the club continue on their upwards journey.”
