With the sudden departure of David Moyes from Everton after an alleged falling out with the board Jim Hammond was shocked to find a letter in the post. It was asking for him to come in for an interview. Jim had only had non-leauge managerial roles and he had only been assistant manager of Bury for 6 months. He thought it was a joke, but he soon found out it wasn't.
Jim Hammond took a deep breath, raised his hand and knocked on the door of Bill Kenwright's office door. He was hit with a surprise, there were many people in the room. They were the Everton Board members, Jim was startled.
"Ah James! I am very happy to meet you, do please take a seat." said the chairman, Bill Kenwright. "Now, I am sure you are very excited to be here, and so are we. You are one of the picks of young coaches out there, and we know of your successes. Leading St. Albans to the Evo-Stik Southern title by winning every match was certainly impressive."
"Aha yes... St. Albans were a great team," Jim nervously spat out.
"Yes, now if you don't mind, we will ask you a few questions."
"Great, now, why should we hire you even though you have no managerial experience at a high level?"
"Well, Mr Kenwright, I would like to say that not everything comes with experience. Just look at people like Mark Hughes, he has experience, but yet my 3 year old son would make a better manager. I have what you need, I have proven I know my way around tactics, with St. Albans."
"Ok thank you James, we have run out of time.We'll be in touch."
Jim made his way out of the office with a million things buzzing in his head. Did he sound confident? Was his reason good? He was bricking it, and he had finished the interview!
Well there you go! My first post on my new story, hopefully this will go well! I plan to run this story out like my Arsenal one on fm12, but with more focus on the story, and the matches set out better.
Hopefully you guys will enjoy it!
