We understand that you may be interested in the appointment of Paul Jewell as manager of your football club. Should you proceed with the appointment of such an auspicious name as manager of your great team, he will no doubt wish to bring his own back office team in support of his endeavours.
Chris Hutchings should need no introduction in this regard as he has worked with Mr Jewell in the past, but just in case you have any insecurities, we, the fans of Walsall FC, would like to passionately recommend him to you.
In his time at Walsall FC, Chris has presided over a comfortable period in the club’s history, steering us safely to a position in the middle of League One and successfully avoiding a relegation dogfight. Do not be fooled by our current league position! Everyone at the club understands that sometimes the ball does not run your way, and that you can be desperately unlucky. On many occasions we’ve won games in all areas of the pitch, but unfortunately lost them on the scoreboard through no fault of Chris’.
Our owner, Jeff Bonser, describes Chris as ‘the best manager he’s worked with’, and that is high praise when compared with some of the previous luminaries managing at Walsall, such as Jan Sorensen, Paul Merson and Jimmy Mullen. Chris is interested in all aspects of the club, not just the team, and is keen on making his mark in many areas.
Chris’ success on the training ground (the best facility in the Midlands, by the way), his success in attracting talent, motivation and consistency is second to none, and without him we would not be where we are today.
We highly recommend Chris Hutchings as assistant to Paul Jewell, and whilst sorry to see him go, would not wish to stand in the way of his development and career. We are, after all, a selling club, and we know our place. We’ll just roll up our shirt sleeves and get on with things, maybe quietly reminiscing over a DVD of some of Chris’ hihglights.
