Pembroke look for new coach following Fulton resignation

Pembroke Wanderers are now accepting applications for the position of men's first team coach following Craig Fulton’s decision to resign from the role this week.

As a result, the club is now welcoming expressions of interest for the position of the men’s first team coach for the upcoming 2010/11 season and potentially a longer term.
