Dean Greygoose, who is hoping to stay at Mildenhall Town

Mildenhall Town boss Dean Greygoose is hopeful of extending his stay at Recreation Way.

The former Haverhill Rovers boss is in interim charge of the west Suffolk club until the end of the season, having replaced former boss Christian Appleford at the end of November.

But, Greygoose, who also coaches at Norwich City Academy, is hoping to carry on as Hall’s man in charge – should the move be right for all parties.

“It’s a pretty casual arrangement at the moment, but we’ll see how it goes,” said the former Football League goalkeeper, whose side defeated Ely by two goals to nil in a local derby watched by more than 190 people on Friday night, with goals from Richard Logan and Matthew Green.

“I do a lot of work at Norwich’s academy, working on my coaching badges as well, and at the moment it doesn’t interfere with Mildenhall.

“A lot depends on that (as to whether Greygoose stays on after this season), and I want to stay but it’s got to work for both parties.

“I’m hopeful it will.”

Greygoose continued: “It’s also a case of Mildenhall looking at me and what I’m doing long-term, are they happy with me?

“I’d like to think they are, and so far, so good.

“Yes, I would have liked to have won a few more games (Greygoose’s league record stands at played 12, won six, drawn one, lost five), but we are now playing some good stuff, and it’s always going to take a new management team a little while to settle down.”

Greygoose has made five signings since his arrival, and admits that he has a couple more irons in the fire if needed.

“I’ve got a good squad with a good team spirit here now,” he continued.

“We have a couple of options if we need players to come in but they’ve got to add something to the team and be better than what we’ve already got.”

Greygoose’s side, who sit in eighth place in the Thurlow Nunn Premier Division, do not have a game this weekend, with their next fixture a tough one – a trip to runaway league-leaders Norwich United on March 7.

Hall currenlt sit embroiled in a mid-table battle, like they have done all season, five points off the top six, but nine points clear of the bottom six-placed sides.
