Maldon & Tiptree appoint ex-England and Premier League manager

Maldon & Tiptree appoint ex-England and Premier League manager Peter Taylor, after controversially getting rid of Adam Flint.

The vastly-experienced 69 year old, who was a caretaker boss for the Three Lions, has agreed to take over at the Isthmian League North Division club.

Taylor takes over from Flint, who was dismissed as Jammers boss on Monday after little more than two months in the job and had improved their form.

CLUB STATEMENT:

Maldon and Tiptree are delighted to bring Peter Taylor on board as the new First Team Manager at Park Drive.

The vastly experienced manager brings a wealth of experience with him, including taking temporary charge of England, as well as a stint at the helm of Leicester City in the Premier League.

With over 800 games as manager to his name, Taylor has also had spells in charge of Crystal Palace, Hull City and Brighton and Hove Albion, and will be in the dugout at Park Drive for this weekend’s home fixture against Wroxham.

Mitchell Cowling, General Manager at Maldon and Tiptree said of the appointment: β€œI am delighted to welcome Peter Taylor to Maldon and Tiptree FC. His wealth and knowledge is second to none and I am excited for everyone involved with the club to start working with him.”

And Jammers fans can hear from the new manager first after an interview on Thursday.

Peter Taylor is an English retired footballer who was most recently manager of National League South club Welling United, departing after 166 days in charge, following a 1–1 draw against Bath City four points above the relegation zone, with bottom club Billericay Town having a game in hand over Welling at the time.

He was previously manager at Dartford, Enfield, Southend United, Dover Athletic, Leicester City, Brighton and Hove Albion, Hull City, Crystal Palace, Kerala Blasters, Stevenage Borough, Wycombe Wanderers, Bradford City and (twice) Gillingham, leaving the last role at the end of 2014.

He also had two spells as head coach of the England under-21 team and took charge of the England national team as caretaker manager for one game against Italy, for which he put the captains armband on David Beckham for the first time.

He managed the England under-20 team in 2013.

Outside England, Taylor was the head coach of the Bahrain national football team.

During his time as a player with Crystal Palace during the 1970s, Taylor became one of the few players to have been selected for the senior England team when not playing in the top two flights of a domestic league.

This is was what social media users said as Maldon & Tiptree appoint the ex-England and Premier League manager…

@LeeWitney24: Big shoes to fill in so many ways, good luck and welcome to the club πŸ“

@RMolloy23: Topman lovely bloke wish u all the best #spud

@TomMorris16: They’d be better off with Peter File

@matthillcact: Wooooooof…what a coup

@DagenhamLegend: It really isn’t πŸ˜†

@WilloAlan: Fuc—g embarrassing! What a waste of money, that resource better spent on a squad. These two idiots don’t have a clue, money is tight at this level big name managers are for your xbox. Let’s hope he does well otherwise we are knackered & skint at the same time πŸ™

@aldershot4ever: Interesting

@MattCardy1: Good to see another young manager get an opportunity

@JSCB1986: Wow wow wow! I know there was a lot of criticism aimed at Mitchell especially when the previous manager was let go as he had done a good job but never did I imagine this sort of appointment πŸ‘πŸ½πŸ‘πŸ½πŸ‘πŸ½

@LeeWitney24: It’s a vanity project mate. Nothing more.

@JSCB1986: Even so… a massive opportunity for all players involved to be managed by PT. Equally will attract better players surely?

@LeeWitney24: Not necessarily. He was relegated with Welling and had a rough time at Dagenham too by all accounts. Knowing players at this level is half the battle, Flinty is incredibly well connected and respected in that regard. I hope this appointment works, obviously. But it doesn’t make much sense to me.

@JSCB1986: Yeah I get that completely. Hope it works for everyone involved at the club πŸ‘πŸ½

@That_Ref_Guy: If this is a vanity project, then wasn’t Flinty a nostalgic project? Unfortunately new stewardship won’t want old hats around still

@TheLatestColU: Wow. Quite a coup for them #ColU

@PardenWalker: Welcome aboard

@360fisheye:: Great player at @SpursOfficial back in the 70s

@LoafBloke666:: My sincere condolences @MaldonTiptreeFC

@seanyroth90:: Bit weird

@johntaylor19791:: Vanity appointment. Has zero idea about the division.

@jakimoskiFC:: This is awesome
