Olympic Race To Name Manager As McDonald Moves On

Rushall Olympic have moved swiftly to replace the departing long-server Liam McDonald.

The National League North club’s search was concluded within 48 hours after the appointment of Adam Stevens.

McDonald, who has since taken over at Stourbridge after six years of service, will be succeeded by the 49-year-old former Shepshed Dynamo, Coalville Town and Grantham Town boss.

He is someone who has gained a reputation over the past couple of decades for building strong, attractive and hard-working teams, Rushall told their fans in a statement last night.

Steve Hinks and Richard Sneekes will work alongside his as the club look to progress from last season’s 19th place finish.

“We have been inundated with quality interest and we feel that Adam, Steve and Richard are a team with complementary skill sets in terms of experience, success, coaching abilities and recruitment contacts,” the board said.

“We have been long-time admirers of Adam for the quality of his attractive, skilled and hard-working teams during his second tenure of over six years at Coalville Town. As a club, we have enjoyed many battles with his teams over the years and now we’re looking forward to Adam going into battle on our side.

“He is excited about the opportunity and hungry for the formidable challenge ahead and our supporters will enjoy his passion and belief in building on our club ethos that we’re all in it together.

“Steve and Richard don’t really need any introduction, previously working as a successful management team at our club, with Steve also working as Adam’s assistant at Coalville Town.

“Steve is also our successful Academy Manager and they are both well-respected, experienced and skilled operators with great contacts who will bring their own attributes to our new management team.”
