Alvechurch boss Ian Long is preparing for another season at the helm after committing to the Southern League club for football’s return.
Ian Long is determined to pull off a Great Escape at Alvechurch and prove any suggestions the Stourbridge job was too big for him are well wide of the mark.
Alvechurch have paid tribute to Dean Holtham after he stood aside to make way for the return of Ian Long, the most successful manager in the BetVictor Southern League club’s history.
Promotion-chasing Stourbridge have parted company with Ian Long with the seventh-placed Glassboys only a point adrift of the play-offs spots.
Long feels his side, who are chasing a third promotion on the spin, have been caught up in the middle of a saga not of their own doing
Should they do that and go on to win through the Step 3 Super Play-offs, it would be a third success on the spin
ALVECHURCH boss Ian Long admitted his Midland League champions have been forced to excel at the ugly side of the game to claim their crown.
MORE than a century of points, 99 goals scored, but Alvechurch were the latest club to miss out on promotion from Step 5.
DAGENHAM & REDBRIDGE will be hoping new signing Christian Assombalonga can follow in the footsteps of brother Britt and bang in the goals on their return to Non-League football.
