Andrews overjoyed by Razor Ray appointment
FC CLACTON co-owner Stephen Andrews has admitted being “overjoyed” by Ray Turner’s appointment.
The former striker is taking over from Andy Taylor, who officially resigned on Tuesday night.
“I’ve got mixed emotions because I’m very sorry to see Andy step down,” said Andrews. “But I’m overjoyed that we’ve been able to appoint someone of Ray’s calibre.
“We were so impressed by the way he conducted himself during his time as assistant boss (under ex-manager Steve Pitt).
“He’s clearly a committed, determined and enthusiastic character who has been there and done it at this level as a player.
“He ticks every box and I’m sure sure we’ve made the right appointment in the best interests of the club.”
Andrews also confirmed that he and chairman David Ballard did not speak to anyone else about replacing Taylor.
