Phil Simpson is still in the dark over his future at Tooting & Mitcham, with the club yet to make any plans for next season.

The Terrors have been in limbo since the end of the Ryman Division One South season three weeks ago as talks between owner Steve Adkins and a supporters group willing to take over the running of the club drag on.

The delay has meant there are no pre-season friendlies planned and no decisions made over a first-team manager or players.

Simpson was interim manager from February onwards after Jamie Martin resigned but is as in the dark as everyone else over his and the Terrors' future.

"They haven't said a word to me regarding next season," he said.

"It is a little bit disappointing, as if I am in charge I will be two months behind the rest of the managers in the league.

"You cannot really do anything at a football club unless you know who is in charge, the club is static until that happens.

"I don't know what is going on and I don't really want to know, all I want to know is whether I will be in charge or not."

Simpson had been out of senior management for a couple of years before stepping up from Tooting's academy to take control of the first team.

But now he has the taste for it again, he is desperate to stay a manager and admits his unresolved future at Tooting has seen him looking at other options.

"I cannot wait for people to come back to me and then say we don't want you and I have let other chances past," he said.

"It is difficult for me though as I am not a big name in football and owners and boards look for a big name manager rather than what a person can bring.

"I definitely want to stay as a manager though. I know what qualities I have as a coach and a manager and what I can do to be successful.

"I have every confidence in my own ability."
