Staff at Crawford & Co are awaiting the arrival of Ian Muress' new right-hand man Benedict Burke. So what can they expect? Will it be the jovial and social Burke who served GAB Robins for 21 years? Well yes, but there will be a new management style, it seems.

Burke is putting his gardening leave to good use by undertaking a course that leads to the FA's coaching badge. As well as expecting a slimmed down Burke after all that training, Crawford should prepare to be employed in Christmas tree formations after taking "bleep" fitness tests and the occasional "teacup" tantrum from the gaffer.
