Clinton Curate, one time Eagles centreback has accepted the offer of a position amongst the coaching staff.
When asked by this reporter if the rumours of a career in coaching with the Eagles were true, Clinton said "Bloody right they're true! I nearly tore the Chairmans arm off grabbing the contract!".
Rumours of Clint being on a contract of two packs of salted peanuts per season are still not corroborated as when question Clinton would only say, "no comment, it's not professional to talk about salaries. It's a private matter."
If these rumours are true, Clinton would have been gone from nothing to being one of the highest earners in the Eagles team. This would undoubtedly unsettle his ex-team mates who are believed to be on one kit kat per year between them.
An Eagles board member told the assembled press, "We're proud to get Clinton on board. ALL his years of experience are bound to help our younger players. It's just a shame he'd never won anything. At the end of the day, this is all our budget could extend to!"
Reporters are currently trying to contact the Merton Eagles players for their views on the appointment of Clinton.
