Herbert Hails ‘Burrliant’ Assistant Manager Appointment

1874 boss Chris Herbert has spoken about his delight at reuniting with non-league stalwart Steve Burr, after the club announced his appointment as assistant manager this afternoon.

Burr brings a wealth of experience to the club, and Herbert was quick to express the benefits his appointment will bring to the club.

“Bringing Steve to the club is a real coup, he is legend with the 74 fans, and this really shows our intentions for this season.”

“Steve has a wealth of knowledge and experience, from being assistant manager for the England’s C squad, to managing Chester and Kidderminster Harriers in the National League.”

Burr, who has most recently been working at Hull City, previously recruited Chris to his coaching team at Chester, but it’s roles reversed this time around as Steve will look to use his knowledge and expertise to work alongside Herbert, the players and the rest of ‘74’s experienced coaching team.

“The real winners with the appointment of Steve Burr, along with Head Coach Mark Reed, and keeper coach Mark Corbett, are the players,” Herbert said.

“They will only learn and improve from the knowledge and experience of these guys, and it’s our job to make sure this happens and quickly so we can hit the ground running at the start of the season.”

“We will all be in it together.”
