Anthony Hayes to take team
Anthony Hayes has had an interesting coaching career spending 5 years within Brentford’s progressive coaching set-up before moving to Charlton in 2016.
The Irishman moved through the ranks at The Valley and was promoted by Ben Garner recently to be first team assistant coach. This morning he was given the job of caretaker manager following Garner’s sacking yesterday.
Hayes comes across as articulate and thoughtful, and very recently completed his UEFA Pro License. Hayes was appreciative of the support he got from Garner, and will take the team on Wednesday at Stockport and “until a replacement has been found.”
Hayes will be assisted by Jason Pearce, who knows plenty about the club. Let us hope he is coaching defending at set pieces and not passing around at the back!
The absence and what Hayes said about Scott Marshall probably means he will follow Garner out of the club.
