Search begins for ‘marvelous’ amateur bosses

The Johnstone’s Paint Trophy has launched a summer scouting mission to find some of the most marvellous non-league managers in the UK.

Organisers are inviting everyone to nominate their favourite amateur boss who they think is in a league of their own.

The trophy has created a bespoke section on its website and every nomination will be displayed during August for fans to log on and vote for their favourite. The winner will receive the first ever ‘Johnstone’s Marvellous Manager’ trophy, a commemorative ball from the 2009/10 final and a new strip for his team. Ten runner’s up will each receive a Johnstone’s Paint Trophy replica ball. Visit www.johnstonespainttrophy.co.uk to enter.
