Speculation last night suggested the former Solihull Moors boss was about to be appointed as Town’s new permanent manager.

He added: “I have not actively progressed with communication towards any of the applicants (for the manager’s job).

“Currently there are 38 applications.”

Flowers left Solihull by mutual consent on Tuesday with the club in ninth position in the National League.

The 52-year-old, who won the Premier League with Blackburn Rovers in 1995, was appointed Moors managed in 2018 and led them to second in the National League last season – their highest ever league finish.
