PAUL March has revealed to the Wakefield Express that he has missed out on the head coach’s role at Co-operative Championship One new boys Northampton.

The former Wakefield Trinity Wildcats half-back was interviewed by the Midlands club a fortnight ago but has now been told that he didn’t get the job.

March, 32, said: “The club is looking for someone from the Northampton area.

“I will learn from the experience of going to the club and taking part in the interview process.”

March has previously had spells as player-coach at York City Knights and Hunslet Hawks and is currently playing at Keighley Cougars under another former Wildcat, Jason Demetriou.

Despite missing out on the Northampton job, March remains focused on becoming a coach and believes that his playing days are not yet over.

He said: “I would like a head coach’s role at Championship level but my body has held up this season and I will continue to play.

“I think that I have another season in me and I will just take it one game at a time.”
