One-time Posh player Hamish Curtis is the new manager of Peterborough Premier Division side ICA Sports.
Curtis has been acting as caretaker-boss for the last three matches following the decision of previous manager Leighton Atkin to seek a different career path.
Curtis had been managing one of ICA’s junior sides this season, but is happy to take the step up.
He’s certainly had a positive effect as under his care ICA have drawn at Moulton Harrox, knocked Stilton out of the PFA Cup and now beaten rock bottom Crowland, albeit by just a 1-0 margin courtesy of a Joshua Smith goal.
“I love the club so I was more than happy to help out when asked,” Curtis stated.
“I have Angus Hepburn alongside me and I’m confident we can do a decent job.
“I won’t be setting any targets. In fact I never look at league tables.
“We will just try and win every game we play and see where that takes us.”
ICA are away at city rivals Riverside this Saturday (December 20).
Atkin has taken a paid role within Corby Town’s youth set-up.
Stilton warmed up for their tough test at high-flying Oakham this Saturday with a 4-3 win at Thorney with player-manager Mark Baines scoring one of the goals.
Peterborough Sports Reserves completed the semi-final line-up in the Presidents Shield by thumping Leverington 4-1.
Sports now tackle Oakham in the semi-finals with holders Netherton taking on ICA Sports in the other last-four tie.
