DANNY Holmes said both he and the Wimborne Town board were taking his tenure in charge “month by month”.

The former Middlesbrough and Aldershot midfielder took charge of Magpies in early September after brother Matty moved to a new role as the club’s community and academy director of football.

Danny Holmes has since led the first team to victories over Poole Town and Beaconsfield, as well as a draw and defeat to Truro City.

A statement from the club earlier this month said Danny Holmes would manage the side “until such time as a new manager is appointed”.

He is set to once again be in the dugout for Saturday’s home Southern League South clash with Weston-super-Mare (3pm).

Giving an update on his managerial situation, Danny Holmes told the Daily Echo: “I have spoken to Graham Bell (director), and Tony (Grant, chairman) and I am getting some great texts after games saying ‘fantastic’ and ‘well done’.

“They have been really pleased with things on the pitch and I think that always will help. As far as I’m concerned at the moment, we are seeing week to week or month to month.

“Hopefully I will have some more news for you sooner or later but at the moment I would like to keep it at that. They are seeing how I get on and I am seeing how I get on.

“For the boys, you need to have some clarification of what the long term is. Hopefully, I reckon within the next month, things will be a bit more set in stone.”

Asked whether he still wanted the job on a permanent basis, Danny Holmes replied: “Absolutely. I think already in a short time I have come a long way. I have my own little business as well and it’s trying to adapt the two.

“I have a very positive attitude towards it, that’s all I’ve ever known for football on a Saturday.”

He added: “It’s been frantic but I have really enjoyed it.

“What I have enjoyed is the way the boys have stepped up to the mark for me. They have really shown a great commitment, attitude and the way they have applied themselves in games and listened has been really good.”
