Saints manager blow
Jason Cadden when Leamington played Colchester United in the FA Cup
The world of mid-Warwickshire football is increasingly looking like that of Ron Knee and Neasden. After 'Bazza' Shearsby left Southam United in something of a huff to run village side Stockton, former Brakes supremo Jason Cadden has turned down a chance to manage the Saints. It doesn't seem that money was the deciding factor at the ambitious Banbury Road outfit with Cadzy promised a big budget.
In an editorial about the Leamington Spa Courier described Cadden, who was sacked from Leamington earlier this season, as 'a big name manager with a proven track record'. But they also warned that if Cadden did not accept a role soon, he could be a forgotten name in Midlands non-league football.
Cadden himself said that the timing was not right. However, some felt that he was not keen about dropping two divisions down the non-league pyramid despite the considerable potential in the growing town which now shares the name of a Parliamentary constituency. Cadzy, who turned down a chance to go to Rugby Town, may have set his sights on higher things.
More controversy has been caused by Brakes current manager Paul Holleran. Speaking before he jetted off to soak up the sun in Spain, the supremo slammed departing Brakes striker Mark Bellingham for being over sensitive to comments about him made on a fans' web board. Given that Bello is a sergeant with West Midlands Police in his day job, one would not have thought that sensitivity was his key characteristic.
