Could Grimsby’s Scott Still Have A Hatters Date?
Rob Scott’s Grimsby Town departure ahead of the Luton Town game has sparked rumours that Stockport County could be his next port of call. Gossip certainly but the parting of the ways was for ‘non footballing reasons’, begging the question that he could be set to miss one Hatters date for another with one of the biggest jobs in Non-League football up for grabs following Ian Bogey’s on pitch resignation last week.
With Chairman John Fenty putting Paul Hurst in sole charge and then explaining that the parting of the ways had nothing to do with the teams performances, the Cleethorpes rumour mill has moved into overdrive. The club and its chairman have declined to comment further on the matter at this time. The duo, seemed joined at the hip, having worked together at Ilkeston, Boston and Grimsby, taking both The Robins and The Pilgrims into the BSN in successive seasons.
Rob’s disciplinarian profile, a tad unjust, would be perfect for the Hatters who have been in free-fall. Having taken over from David Holdsworth he guided an Ilkeston side beset by financial turmoil to the Northern Premier League promotion via the play-offs. Mr Scott does have Cheshire connections having played at Macclesfield at the end of a 15 year career. He also played at Oldham so he is no stranger to the other side of the Pennines.
The Hatters are a fantastic club with massive potential and a fantastic fan-base…. surely the bounce-back has to start soon? Could Rob Scott be the very man to do it as he branches out on his own?
