New Malmesbury Victoria boss Andy Wicks is enjoying his role as join manager of the club despite suffering back to back defeats this week.

Malmesbury were beaten 3-1 at Clanfield in the league on Saturday before a disappointing 5-1 defeat to Wessex League side Laverstock and Ford in the Wiltshire Senior Cup on Tuesday.

Wicks stepped in from his role on the club's committee to take the reigns alongside 21-year-old Josh Langley.

Wicks admitted that if the 'right candidate' came along he'd be happy to step aside but for now, he's enjoying the challenge and feels the lads have responded well to the new set up since Kev Bridgeman's departure.

"I spoke to the lads before and asked how they'd feel about it and they've all got on board," Said Wicks. "We had a good start bar the last two games but I've really enjoyed it.

"As a committee, we didn't want an outsider who may have bought their own people and changed what Bridgeman built so I suggested I could bring some experience.

"If the right candidate did come along I wouldn't be too precious but for the foreseeable I'm enjoying working with Josh."

Wicks was disappointed with his team's performance on Tuesday and admitted as visit from league leaders Cheltenham Saracens wouldn't have been his chosen fixture for the weekend.

"I don't mind losing as long as we battle but none of us did. They were a well drilled side but the difference was they were clinical and we weren't.

"Cheltenham Saracens isn't quite what you want after two losses but I don't really look at other teams whether that's a good thing or a bad thing.

"We've been creating chances and we won't change the way we play but if we turn up we can beat anyone."
