Powell linked with Grimsby post
Wednesday 21 October 2009
England women's coach Hope Powell has sensationally been linked with the vacant managerial post at Grimsby Town.
The Mariners disposed of Mike Newell earlier this week and are currently on the search for a new manager, with Powell said to be in the running.
Should the 42-year-old, who led England's women to the European Championships final this summer, land the post, she would become the first-ever female manager of a football league club.
Speaking to Sky Sports News, League Managers' Association chief executive Richard Bevan said: "Why shouldn't she (make the step into the men's game)? Hope has done a fantastic job with England, but I'm not sure the FA would want to let her go."
The Football Association has denied any knowledge of the story.
