Thetford Town’s interim manager David Skipp conceded his ambition to take the reins on a full-time basis.

Following the shock sacking of Mark Scott last week, Skipp was placed in temporary charge with Town goalkeeper-turned-outfield player Ian Fancett named as his assistant.

His first match in charge ended in a 5-3 defeat to higher-league Bury Town in the FA Cup preliminary round on Sunday, but ahead of hosting Blackstones in the FA Vase first qualifying round tomorrow (3pm), Skipp revealed the duo would consider the role on a full-time basis.

“Myself and Ian have stepped up on an interim basis and if we can do well then we’d be interested, why not,” he said.

“It is down to the committee and the chairman, but if things are going well then we’d be happy to take the jobs.

“However, we know it is not our decision and we will have to see what the calibre of people interested is like.

“It is about taking the club forward now, that is the most important thing and the main objective of everyone. We just want to get the lads together and give them a bit of confidence.”
