In the time since the end of last season and now, Trafford have brought in a new manager... Tom Baker. Tom had a great playing career himself and although it was cut short through injury, he is clearly motivated and excited by his new role as manager of our super, little club.
To get to know Tom a bit better and to wet the appetite ahead of the new season, Tom kindly answered some questions this weekend:
Supporters Club: I know its early days, but how have you found the transition from player to manager?
Tom Baker: Relative ease so far. Possibly the type of player and character I am and was has made the transition not to difficult, although I'm sure I will have some stumbling blocks along the way. The most difficult part is not wanting to kick a ball myself.
SC: Before you came to Trafford FC, what were your thoughts on the club and have they changed since you became manager?
TB: Always look on Trafford as a good, family club that play an attractive brand of football and are renown for a great pitch.
