Burley's a Saint!

Burley's a Saint!

George Burley has surprisingly been named as Saints new boss, and will be unveiled at St Marys on Friday.

It looked like Feyenoord Director of Football Mark Wotte was set to be given the job but that appears to have been a smokescreen and George Burley will now become the new Head Coach, with Clive Woodward becoming Director of Football.

It's an exciting appointment for Saints; Burley was easily the fans favourite in the Vital poll, with over 40% of the vote.

He is the high profile name that Saints fans were hoping for to change our fortunes. He also has a proven track record in this division.

Hopefully Lowe will give him the backing and space to finally build a platform for long term success at the club.

A press conference will be held at 2.30pm on Friday, to officially unveil Burley as our new Head Coach.
