Huntingdon Town management shake-up

IAN McIntosh is the new Huntingdon Town Reserve Team manager.


IAN McIntosh is the new Huntingdon Town Reserve Team manager.

Scot McIntosh takes over the reigns from Ricky Marheineke who moves up to succeed first-team assistant manager Pat O’Keefe, who has left due to work commitments.

Born in Glasgow, 35-year-old McIntosh started at Motherwell Youth before moving south to Peterborough. He enjoyed spells at March Town, Deeping Rangers and Peterborough Northern Star, and has recently taken the decision to move into the dugout.

Town manager Al Lenihan welcomed McIntosh to the club, and said that Marheineke’s move to the first-team set-up would be beneficial for the club.

“Ricky is a great asset to the club. He is a local lad and knows local football inside out.”

Marheineke and McIntosh will have plenty of time to settle into their roles, should the poor weather continue. However, Lenihan is not losing any sleep over any cancelled fixtures.

“It’s nice to tell people that we haven’t lost a match for six weeks, and that we’ve only conceded one goal. It must be my longest run unbeaten as a manager.

“At least we have enough space to re-arrange matches, so long as this doesn’t go on for several weeks.”

Town are due to visit Bourne on Monday, weather permitting, and host neighbours Eynesbury Rovers on Monday, January 3.
