Former Pegasus Juniors general manager Marc Jarvis eyes up new challenge
12:36pm Friday 21st February 2014 in Sport
FORMER Pegasus Juniors general manager Marc Jarvis is eyeing up a new challenge for next season.
Jarvis has left Old School Lane after three successful years.
“My work hours changed and, with the football, it all became bit too much,” said Jarvis, a former assistant manager to Adie Morgan.
“Hopefully, next season I will be involved again in local football and be an assistant manager to someone.”
Jarvis joined forces with then manager Adie Morgan in the 2010/11 season when Pegasus’ first-team were at their lowest ebb at the bottom of the Hellenic League Premier Division.
“The first year at Pegasus was really hard and somehow Adie and me managed to keep the club going in very difficult circumstances,” recalled Pegasus.
“I think Jack Frost was our best player that season because we didn’t have a match for about two months and during the period, we only had seven or eight players. The bad weather was a blessing for us and allowed us to get some players into Pegasus.”
Morgan was the club's fourth first-team manager that season following Steve Griffiths, caretaker boss Leigh Harris and Paul Wilband.
Pegasus eventually finished bottom of the Hellenic League Premier Division that season and then transferred to the West Midlands League set-up.
Morgan stood down as manager at the end of last season and was replaced by Chris Hyde.

Jarvis: “I wasn’t doing an awful lot – compared to previous seasons – but I am enjoying a break from football and I have been watching Hereford United. My mum is also 86 years old.
“Due to work, things became very busy but I know that, after a break from football, I will be raring to get involved with a new challenge next season.”
