We at Hyde FC are sad to announce the departure of our manager Scott McNiven, after his 5 years at the club, as he progressed from Player to Manager, bringing through some great players and instilling an excellent team spirit within the squad. The board wish Scott all the best in his future endeavours, and look forward to the next chapter in our history.
I quietly shook my head...why would they get rid of McNiven? he’s done a great job at Hyde, despite them being relegated from the Skrill Premier. I shrugged and went back to my breakfast, fuelling my body for a gruelling day of reading terrible resumes and not calling anyone back...working at a recruitment firm wasn’t the bundle of laughs all the graduates make it out to be.
At my elbow, my phone buzzed. I ignored it though, no doubt it would be a pointless text from one of my friends, probably asking if we’re going for a drink later on...being paralytic didn’t really appeal to me at that moment in time, so I pocketed my phone, and headed for the door.
As I got into my car, my phone buzzed again, more insistent, more urgent, almost. Sighing, I pulled it from my pocket, and looked at the number on the incoming call...It wasn’t one I recognised...Reluctantly, I answered the phone
Mr De Rossi?
