Former St Neots Town boss and goalscoring legend Steve Kuhne has turned down the chance to manage Eynesbury.
Kuhne was approached by Rovers chairman Matt Plumb to take charge at Hall Road, but he has chosen to remain loyal to his current club, Olney.
Plumb said: “I don’t mind admitting we offered the job to Steve. He is someone I know well through football and I felt he would do a good job at Eynesbury.
“We spoke about the job but, after giving it plenty of thought, he decided to stay loyal to his current club and I fully respect him for doing that.
“There isn’t enough loyalty left in the game.”
Plumb has since continued his search for a successor to Martin Field, who resigned as Rovers boss a fortnight ago.
He was due to speak to another potential candidate last night (Tuesday).

Dave Northfield, who is also the club’s Under 21 manager, remains in temporary charge of first-team affairs.
He has guided Rovers to back-to-back United Counties League Premier Division victories.
