The future’s Bright: Chairman vows to bring stability to Chatteris Town after taking joint charge

CHAIRMAN Steve Bright and former reserves boss Leigh Matthews have vowed to bring stability to Chatteris Town by taking joint control of the first team.

Manager Ossie Mintus walked out on the Lilies at the end of last month - three weeks before the start of the Kershaw Premier League season.

Mintus, who succeeded caretaker boss Julian Young, left without taking charge of a game.

But the club have now decided that Bright and Matthews will fill the role, with league champions Linton Granta the first team to visit West Street on Tuesday.

Bright said: “The plan is for us to take joint charge until the end of the season and then to open the job for applications again.

“We want to get that stability. We’re faces that everybody knows and we’ve been at the club a long time.

“We’re going to give it 100 per cent and hope that things work out. We’re also hoping to get some players back and we’ve made a few enquiries.”
