Mick Halsall raring to go, doesn't rule out permanent Notts County job

Joe Jones

Notts County caretaker manager Mick Halsall has not ruled out becoming Magpies boss on a permanent basis, but remains focused on the immediate job ahead for now.

The 54-year-old has been placed in charge of Notts along with Under-21s coach Richard Dryden following the sacking of Ricardo Moniz, and the pair will be in charge for the club’s home League Two clash against Oxford United on Saturday.

Halsall told reporters: “Let’s get off to a winning start, let’s see what we can do.

“Richard is very similar to myself, we just want to do the best we can, give the players the best opportunity to do what they can come Saturday

“We know it’s a difficult game, don’t get me wrong, they are a good side, but why not? Bring it on. I’m here to do a job and we’re just going to give it the best we can.”

Halsall has not yet spoken to club chairman Ray Trew about the vacant job, but he knows a good run of results will help push him into contention.

He added: “We’ve got to win games, we’ve got to show that we’ve got a belief and an understanding as a team. The consistency has got to come into the game, for our players.

“Can we go and be hard to beat away from home? That’s the big thing Richard and I will be looking at."

Halsall has previously been placed in the caretaker role when he was made joint interim boss with Paul Hart before the now-departed Dutchman was appointed last April.

All due respect to Mick, I hope he remains as part of the youth setup - as I acknowledge the greatness he is achieving there and I would hope for some experienced more so with the first team to replace Moniz.
