Day Of The Interview
I walk into the main office and streight upto the reception.
"Good morning sir, How can I help?"
The lady says, whilst smiling at me.
"Hi, Yes i have a interview with peter, he should be expecting me?"
I respond to her quickly.
"Yes, Please go straight through Peter will see you now....... & Good luck."
I quickly turn about and stride through the solid oak double doors adjacent to me. As I push the door open I see Peter & Trevor hemming sat behind a desk sipping coffee and quietly muttering between themselves. I walk up to the desk and outstretch my hand.
"Ahhh.. Nice to see you again, Glad you could make it"
Peter eagerly says whilst returning my offer of a hand shake.
I sit down at the available chair.
"So.. Shall we get started"
said Trevor."Obviously we have been interviewing a few people on our short-list however Peter and myself do not feel there passion burning through for our vacancy and basically we don't believe they are now suitable managerial candidates."
I nodded in agreeance, nervously sipping my glass if water.
"We want someone who the fans can get behind, who they know & love!... We want you Graham!.. You made over 400 appearances for us, Was club captain for many years & your current work with fleetwood has impressed us."
I sat bolt upright as both men addressed me.
"I'm extremely moved that I would get the chance to manage a club so close to my heart.. But are you sure am your man?"
I spluttered out in shock.
"Graham you were top of our list!"
Trevor said sternly."We have spoken to Fleetwood and negotiated a package for them for your services and would like to offer you a two-year contract, and then we can build from there. What do you think?.."
I sat there in silence I could only reply with "I'm in."
Both men looked overjoyed with my reply, and paperwork was swiftly brought to my attention "Graham... Just sign here and the teams yours, you will have my full backing"
Trevor said excitedly.
I raised the pen up and moved it to the dotted line that was being pointed out to me
"When do we start!"
I announced as my signature was scribbled onto the official paperwork.
