    Longest Serving Managers for a Club?

    I was just wondering who are the longest serving managers for the clubs.. I saw simon bring it up with a line in one of his mid season report cards and was very interested to know if someone could tell me who some of the longest serving managers have been..

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    i think only bugs and graham have held the same position since the very start of wcc. On top of that on Jason hase been a manager since day 1. Maybe deckard at Canterbury too, i cant be sure of that though.

    Blewy was only CEO and didnt start managing until during season 1 and i didnt join until about midway through that year. Also i believe u joined shortly before me didnt you lord?

    Yeah, you certainly are committed. Our conversation the other week was the first time I have had a substantial conversation that only involved WCC.

    Lol one of the reasons for that must have been cause we were arguing about who was gonna win between our two sides, both of us believing the other was going to win. Should be a interesting last half a season.

    I think our clash in round 9 will be a very important game.

    no Marc was he first Warwickshire manager, Nibbs managed somewhere else before that. Marc then chose to go to Surrey and Nibbs got his job...

    It's no surprise that graham is the longest serving, who would want to give up managing Lancashire?
