Pressley, Parkinson in
Phil Parkinson was also at The Valley last night and is reported to be about to sign as Alan Pardew's No.2. He was in the frame as a candidate for manager at Charlton in the summer, but eventually went to Hull. Sacked from there, he has turned down the vacant manager's post at Northampton in favour of the second slot at The Valley. Parkinson was in charge of Colchester for their 9-1 thrashing of Leamington last season.
What all this means for Mark Robson and Mark Kinsella is unclear, but surely there would be a role for them in youth development and community work?
