The Chairman has commented on the cliche that a week is a long time in football, because he certainly feels it's the case with the club this week.
Speaking to the Official Site David Andrews was very respectful when it came to the depature of John Still from the managers hotseat, and whilst I imagine a lot of tabloid headline writers were gagging to use a phrase similar to 'putting the daggers in' there is clearly and rightfully no such animosity between those involved given our former manager's history with us.
The chairman explains that John asked him last Saturday if he could have permission to speak to Luton over the vacant manager seat, and as has always been the case, permission was granted. Sadly for us, John then informed him on Tuesday that after talking with the club he wished to take up the opportunity they provided.
'To say I was shocked is an understatement. Despite anything that I and Steve Thompson said it soon became apparent that John had made his mind up.'
Andrews explains that his next move was to sound out Wayne Burnett to see if he was interested in taking the role on until the end of the season, and obviously, he was and now has his name on the manager's office.
'He had no hesitation in offering his services if required. I've seen him at the training ground and he has impressed me greatly, and I have no doubt he'll impress our supporters too.'
As we all know there was the issue of compensation for Still's services, to which he comments.
'The question of compensation was debated but it was felt unanimously that this could not be a barrier and whilst disappointing to some, a small package was agreed with Luton, including a pre season friendly with all the proceeds being paid to us. I believe it to be the right move.'
