Alan Knill has spoken of his delight at being named our new permanent manager.
Speaking to the Official Site after the accepting the offer from the board, Alan said he would learn from some mistakes he has made at previous clubs, in his best efforts to drive us forward next season.
'I am delighted to be here and looking forward to moving forward.'
He says that when he was appointed manager at Rotherham, despite working his way through the levels from youth manager to assistant manager, he doesn't feel he was ready for the role and the step up was too much for him at the point, however he felt ready for Bury as it was fresh as the club were in a prime position to move forward which excited him. He also feels it was again different when he followed Nigel Adkins at Scunthorpe because expectation levels were massive and it was a more difficult task that he originally anticipated.
'You only get time to reflect when you get the sack and I used that time well. I realised I'd done some thing wrong and there are always reasons you get the sack. We all look to blame but it was really in my hands, and there were things I could have done better.'
Obviously the aim for Alan now he has the job permanently is to improve on our fortunes from last season.
'We obviously want to improve on last season. I was only here for nine weeks but the club started off well last year, then it didn't go so well but we picked up at the end. I have come here because I tihnk we can compete and the league next year will be as open as it has been this year, and I'm hoping Torquay will be one of those teams.'
