New AFC Telford United boss Steve Kittrick tells BBC Radio Shropshire he was on holiday in Tenerife when he first heard about the vacancy at the New Bucks Head.
The former Guiseley boss, who had been out of the game since September 2013, revealed that he had spoken to other clubs but none of them "excited" him.
"It's a big club. I always wanted to manage in the Conference. I think I can do it in the Conference - it's not rocket science," he says.
