Saints Looking To Preston For Ross Wilson Replacement
Thursday, 7th Nov 2019 10:55
Saints are said to be chasing Joe Savage currently at Preston North End as they look to replace the now departed Ross Wilson.
Saints are looking to appoint Joe Savage of Preston North End as their new Director Of Football/Head of recruitment as they bid to restructure the backroom staff at the club.
Savage played lower league football in Scotland for Stenhousemuir, Arbroath, East Stirling and Berwick Rangers, before retiring as a player at the age of 27.
Savage then joined-up with AlexNeil at Hamilton as a games analyst and then followed him to Norwich where he was chief scout, before they both moved to Preston in the summer of 2017.
North End have one of the smallest budgets in the Sky Bet Championship but are second in the table, two points behind leaders West Brom and Savage's work has not gone unnoticed.
Whether Savage is the man Saints want for the job is still to be decided, what is for sure though is that Saints need to make this appointment fast and it needs to be the right one, with the January transfer window looming they need someone who knows what they are doing in the transfer market and player recruitment and no one on the board has that sort of experience.

I have the first of several Xmas work outings tonight, so I'm posting this a bit earlier.
Matches of Yesteryear - Exeter v U's 27/11/91 by wessex_exile
So, back again after my break for international duties. With our ongoing exploits in two of the three domestic cup competitions, it’s nice that the random match selector has chosen one of our earlier forays into a cup competition – albeit the one competition we’re no longer involved in this season…
Matches of Yesteryear - U's v Gills 5/11/94 by wessex_exile
Interesting that on the eve of our Mickey Mouse game against Ipswich, the match selected is from 1994, when we were managed by George Burley. We know a song about him…
Matches of Yesteryear - Mansfield v U's 18/8/18 by wessex_exile
Another busy week, so apologies this has had to wait until today. Once again the random match selector throws a curve ball – with the cheers from our imperious victory at Field Mill last Saturday still fresh in the memory, we return to Field Mill (aka The One-Call Stadium) for this one.
