New job for ex-chief Galloway

AMBITIOUS former Hucknall Town boss Mick Galloway is having another crack at management after taking the reins at Gedling Town.

Galloway, who had a torrid spell in charge at Watnall Road in 2008 alongside Andy Miller, has been installed as chief at the East Midlands Counties League, Premier Division club.

He had been assistant manager to Peter Rinkcavage at Unibond League, Premier Division side Worksop Town since last summer.

But the 35-year-old ex-professional, who played for Notts County and Gillingham, could not turn down the chance to be a manager in his own right again once Gedling came calling.

Galloway suffered a baptism of fire in his first game last Saturday as his new side – who could only muster the bare bones of a line-up – slumped to a 2-0 defeat at Gresley Rovers.

Gedling, whose previous management team included ex-Hucknall midfielder Nigel Bailey, currently sit tenth in the table with 26 points from 19 games.

Galloway, who is still chasing The Yellows for money for an alleged breach of contract, was appointed Hucknall boss with Miller in June 2008 to replace sacked chief David Lloyd.

But a run of poor results led to their dismissals only five months later when Bryan Chambers was brought in to replace them.

Meanwhile Chambers, who resigned as Hucknall boss last month, has revealed he is now working with Unity, the football and education project that he linked up with The Yellows last summer.

Chambers said: "I am going to be doing all sorts. But mainly, I will be helping the kids get jobs or find football clubs, either professional ones or non-league ones. It should be good."
