Barrow Rejects Assistant Job

Barrow Rejects Assistant Job

Chester City assistant boss Graham Barrow has rejected the opportunity to team up with former colleague Roberto Martinez at Swansea.

After getting the vacant manager's job with the Swans, Martinez approached his former colleague, Barrow to join him as his assistant, but he declined the move and said: 'I was flattered to receive the approach from Roberto and I know he will make a success of his career in management, but my heart and affection is and always has been with Chester City.

'Mark (Wright) and the chairman have always been fair to me. I have always been an extremely loyal person and I want to repay the faith that Mark and Mr Vaughan have shown in me.

'I believe that we have the makings of creating something extremely positive at Chester City.

'We have an enthusiastic chairman who backs his management team to the hilt and a progressive manager who has some excellent ideas about the game. That's why I have come to my decision.'


Rumours of Martinez and Barrow teaming up as our new management staff were being posted on message forums last week but it now looks as if Martinez will either keep Nugent and Pascoe, or look elsewhere for his own management staff.
