ANDY Turner says he is ready and willing to help Cefn Druids in whatever capacity he can.

Turner has overseen an improvement at The Rock since he was appointed interim first team manager following the resignation of Niall McGuinness.

Next up for Druids is a key Cymru Premier League basement clash at Haverfordwest County tomorrow.

Druids are at the foot of the table with one point, seven points behind next-to-bottom Haverfordwest.

Turner's first full game in charge was a 4-2 defeat at Cardiff Met - the first time Druids had scored more than one goal in a game this season.

Even better was to follow with a brilliant 1-1 draw at title-chasing Bala Town. However, this was followed by a narrow 1-0 home loss to Aberystwyth Town in Druids' last run-out.

On whether he wants to become Druids' full time first team manager, Turner said: "Yes and no.

"On a Saturday afternoon in the dugout with the lads, great - it's the best place to be."

Turner, a former midfielder with Tottenham Hotspur, Portsmouth and Crystal Palace, has been with Druids since the beginning of September.

He was appointed as the Druids' Academy head of coaching, but he stepped in as interim first team manager less than a month later.

Following a 13-year career as a professional player, Turner has since been a successful on the sidelines, as the lead Academy coach and U19 head coach with the Bangladesh Football Federation, plus roles with the likes of Port Vale, Nottingham Forest, Wolverhampton Wanderers and Chasetown.

At the time of Turner's Academy appointment, Druids' chairman Des Williams said: “My vision for the sustainability for the club has always been about the development of our players and coaches.

“Andy shares that vision and has the drive and determination to help us get to where we need to be.

"He has the experience and proven track record of player development, and he will have total control on how our vision is implemented.”

Turner added: "I'm very concerned I was brought in to do a certain job and I don't want that to get in the way of anything else.

"If I'm asked to do something I will do it and I will do the best I can.

"I'm just going with it and I'm enjoying it.

"I enjoy working with the lads and Academy people and the harder we work, the better we do and the more successful the club is as a whole."
