James Collins joins Greenwich Borough coaching staff

Tuesday 12th September 2017

GREENWICH BOROUGH boss Gary Alexander has appointed James Collins to join his coaching staff.

Collins, 34, was controversially sacked as the manager of Cray Valley in August and Alexander has swooped to bring him to the Bostik South club in a coaching capacity.

“I’d like to welcome James to Greenwich Borough. We have been on the look-out and when James became available it was a no-brainer,” Alexander told www.greenwichboroughfc.co.uk.

“He brings a wealth of non-league experience and has done very well as a manager in his own right. It will be a big plus to have him working alongside us.”

Collins will join Alexander and John Mackie in the dug-out tonight when Greenwich Borough travel to Bostik Premier side Folkestone Invicta in the Kent Reliance Senior Cup Second Round tie at Cheriton Road (7:45pm).
