    Hi XXXXXXXX,

    Thank You for your interest in the vacant coach/managers job at Barnsley FC.

    We would like to formally invite you to an assessment centre at Barnsley Holiday Inn, the day before we play Burton Albion at 9am prompt.

    When you arrive please park in the disabled bays and sneak in from through the doors near the bar area so not to arouse suspicion with the locals. If you could wear a wig that would be great.

    When you get to reception can you ask for the Head of Sports Science (we don't know who this is yet) but hopefully we should have that bit sorted before you arrive.

    The 3 stages of the interview process are as follows:-

    1. Group exercise with your fellow candidates where we will throw loads of spreadsheets at you with names of players you have never heard of and it is your job to try and get us to change our mind by Jedi Mind Tricks, you are not allowed to actually talk to us about it.

    2. Coaching Role Play. One of our media Team will pretend to be Brad Potts and you will have to coach him to be better at dribbling and running. We will do this in the rear car park to try and mimic his turning circle.

    3. Powerpoint Presentation - Can you prepare a 12 hour presentation with the panel, on powerpoint please? You will need to think of new words to complicate the game of association football. An example of this is Bomb Alley, which could last for as long as 2 hours on itself.

    Kind Regards

    GG

    How about testing the ability to pick up negligible / no points in a long run of matches & then feck off up the road for more money?
