'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Brabin Set For 'Pool Manager Talks?

Cambridge United boss Gary Brabin is set to talk to Blackpool about the vacant manager position at Bloomfield Road, according to reports.

The 38-year-old, who was a favourite at the seaside in his three years years at the club back in the 90's, guided his Cambridge side to the Conference playoff final this season. Unfortunately, they lost to Torquay and will remain in the Conference.

And just one day after that playoff defeat, United chairman George Rolls has told BBC Radio Cambridgeshire: 'We've had an approach from another club for Gary and they're quite a lot higher up than we are.

'I felt it was only right to give him permission to speak to them.'


The only clubs without a manager in the football league are Stockport County, QPR, Reading and ourselves.

This development does not mean that Brabin is The Seasiders' first choice, and names such as Ian Holloway, John Sheridan, Alan Knill, Andy Ritchie and even Jim Magilton are being strongly linked.

But the former Blackpool midfielder has made a strong start to his managerial career. Only in his second full season as a gaffer, Brabin has guided Southport to the Conference North playoffs, and a year later Cambridge to the Conference Premier end of season lottery.
