Jenkins: 'Tisdale's Record Is Remarkable'

Jenkins: 'Tisdale's Record Is Remarkable'

Huw Jenkins has complimented Exeter City boss Paul Tisdale who's on the chairman's short-list to become our new manager.

Jenkins has received more than 100 applications to takeover from Roberto Martinez and he has now narrowed that down to a 'top 10' list of candidates.

The Evening Post report that The Exeter City manager refused to comment when they contacted him this week.

Tisdale became manager at St James Park in June 2006 and in his first season, he led the team to a Conference play-off final in which they lost 2-1 to Morecambe.

The following season they went one better, winning the play-off final against Cambridge to return to the Football League.

In 2008, Sky Sports named him in their Football League's Top 10 Managers list, and they were quoted as saying: 'Tisdale is renowned for ensuring his sides play short, tidy football.'

That quote is quite important as Huw Jenkins is very keen on ensuring that we are still playing attractive football next season.

After winning promotion via the play-offs to League 2 in the 07/08 season, Tisdale brought more success to the Grecians, they finished 2nd - winning promotion to League One.

In December 2008, Exeter went 125 games without suffering back-to-back defeats which included Tisdale's first 120 games in charge.

His managerial record at Exeter is: Games - 157, Won - 74 (47%), Lost - 41, Drawn - 42.

A back injury saw his playing career came to a premature end, but this meant he was able to build up 7 years of coaching experience, working as Team Bath's Head Coach. In those 7 seasons, Tisdale won 4 promotions.

Jenkins told the Post:

''His record is remarkable,'

Gary Speed is set to have talks with the Swans after Sheffield United gave us permission to speak to the former Welsh international.

Speed is the clear favourite amongst the fans on Vital Swansea, with 50% of the vote in our poll, In contrast, Paul Tisdale has just 1%. Swans fans are also keen on Graeme Jones staying as manager but Jenkins expects him to join Martinez at Wigan Athletic.
