Stevenage Confirm No Approach Made

Preston would have to make an official approach to Stevenage in order to interview Westley but with interviews having already taken place it appears that either Westley was never interviewed or a formal approach was never made by North End.

The Hertfordshire club have stated that Westley has not mentioned wanting away from a club where he has had success but were aware that underhand practices do exist in recruiting managers and it would not be unsurprising if Westley had been interviewed without the club knowing.

Earlier int he day Peter Risdale announced that he has narrowed the candidates down to one or two albeit he still had to speak with Alexander and Unsworth over the role.
