BREAKING NEWS: Paul Crosbie appointed as March Town United manager
PAUL Crosbie has been appointed as the new manager of March Town United.
The 35-year-old, who had been set to coach at Chatteris Town this season after moving to the area, pipped six other candidates to the hotseat at the GER.
He is a former technical director of the Turks and Caicos Islands, in the West Indies, whom he helped shrug off the tag of the ‘second worst team in world football’.
Chairman Phil White said today: “His knowledge is second to none, his enthusiasm is second to none and he is top notch. I know we have done the right thing.”
Crosbie will speak to the Hares squad this week and will try to convince some key players to remain at the GER.

UEFA B coaching badge holder Crosbie said he was delighted to be given the job and hoped to bring a professional approach to the GER.
“It’s definitely put a smile on my face,” he said. “I’m chuffed to bits and I’m really looking forward to it.
“I tried to take a break from football. I thought I could live without it... but it turns out I can’t.”
Former Wisbech Town assistant manager Chris Dear had also been in the running for the Hares job.
He said on Twitter today: “Genuinely wanted the job and believe could have achieved success for the football club. Wish all at March Town well for the season.”
