Jenkins Wants Back On the Football Roundabout

Football gets in the blood and it is hard to get a cure.

Former Buddies assistant manager Ian Jenkins is interested in being the main man at Peterhead. The job at the Blue Toon fell vacant on Friday when John Sheran was sacked and the former Northern Ireland internationalist has been itching to get back into the game since leaving his post at Paisley at the start of the season. Jenkins, who has been coaching with the SFA recently, has managed Junior sides Broughty Athletic and Tayport in the past and sees the Balmoor job as a great opportunity as he knows his way around the lower leagues. Jenkins, who holds a UEFA ‘A’ Licence Coaching Qualification said: "I will be contacting the club’s chairman, Rodger Morrison, to discuss applying. I know the SFL really well as I was assistant to Danny Lennon when we moved Cowdenbeath from the Third Division to the First in successive seasons. Peterhead is a club that can go on a similar journey and I have wanted to be my own man since leaving St Mirren and I see this as a great opportunity."
