With the club currently squatting down at the bottom of the National League, Chester FC parted company with manager Jon McCarthy on Wednesday following a disappointing 2-0 defeat against fellow stragglers Solihull Moors the night before.

The Blues then installed Tom Shaw as caretaker manager while they began the hunt for a new first-team coach.

Ever so unconventionally, the club decided to kick off their search by posting a job advertisement on their official Twitter account…

As usually tends to happen with this kind of thing, Chester were shocked to find themselves immediately inundated with applications from candidates submitting their various Football Manager CVs.

One hour after the advert went live on social media, the club realised they may have made a small error of judgment…

We very much enjoyed Aftonbladet‘s version of events, once crudely auto-translated from Swedish by Google:

The inbox of the chairman Mark Maguire was ransacked by CVs from play-loving football idiots.

Play-loving football idiots? Yep, that about sums it up!
