Staines Town have today revealed that their new first team manager will be ex-Reading striker Nicky Forster. Competing in the sixth tier of English football in the Conference South Division, Staines were without a manager since Marcus Gayle departed at Christmas. Since then, Martyn Spong had taken charge on a temporary basis.
Prior to this, Forster has already racked every several years of managerial experience. During the 2010/11 season when he was at Brentford, Forster was appointed caretaker manager after the departure of Andy Scott, managing to take Brentford to the Johnson's Paints Trophy Final. He later took charge at Dover Athletic, with an impressive win ratio of 45% helping the Whites to 7th and 3rd placed finishes.
Forster played for Reading between 1999 and 2005, scoring 60 goals in 189 games. It's fair to say that he was one of Reading's best strikers in recent years, coming 4th in our countdown list in October. And of course, no Nicky Forster article is complete without this video...
