The Tons are looking to replace Mike Walther, who went to league rivals Stansted as assistant, with Andre Thomas taking charge as caretaker manager
Former Clapton FC captain and defensive rock Craig Greenwood was among at least a dozen names who applied for the manager’s job, with ex-Tons striker Dave Armstrong lined up as his assistant.
But today Craig revealed on Twitter that there is a shortlist of two names for the job – and he isn’t one of them.
He said: “It is with a heavy heart I can inform you all that me and Armo have not been considered for the role as manager with u guys.
“They have shortlisted to their final 2 and a decision is being made this evening…#seeyouallsoon #neversaynever.”
Names mentioned for the job have included Anwar Uddin and Craig Gilliam, formerly of Sporting Bengal and Basildon United respectively.
Caretaker Andre Thomas, who has overseen a win, a draw and a defeat in three games in charge, is assumed to also be in contention.
Former Clapton manager Wilfred Thomas, in the hotseat in the club’s doldrum years. has recently been seen on the bench sparking speculation he may return.
Ex-Tons assistant manager. current Sporting Hackney boss Peter Harrington, has also been touted.
