Powell dismisses Mariners link

22 Oct 2009 - 15:06:31

England women's coach Hope Powell is baffled as the where the story linking her with the managerial vacancy at Grimsby Town has come from.

The Mariners axed Mike Newell at the weekend and reports earlier in the week had linked the 42-year-old with the struggling League Two side.

However, she said: "It's completely unfounded. I haven't been approached by or spoken to anyone from Grimsby."

Mariners chairman John Fenty is equally non-plussed, saying: "I've never spoken to the lady. She hasn't put an application in so we can hardly consider her.

"If people want to apply we'll consider them in due course. All applications will receive a due overhaul and we will go through them in detail.

"Their better attributes will be identified, they will then be short-listed. We will take them forward as a board, interview the shortlist and ultimately decide who is going to be the next manager."
