It is with regret, especially after such a successful 23 months in charge of the first-team, that this evening manager Richard Dimmock leaves the club.
Whilst our position at the top of SCEFL Division One is strong, and our time under Richard’s management has seen us progress many levels and win trophies, recent results and performances have not been in line with expectations, and several wider issues off the field remain a concern.
We thank Richard for his efforts in his time with us. He has been instrumental in us getting to where we are, and as someone I have known for more than 20 years, this decision is all the more difficult. We’re still surprised he even considered taking the job at the level we were at, and very pleased he helped deliver our main aim at that time of progressing from amateur to semi-professional football and to enter the Southern Counties East Football League. Without his input the club would not be in the place it is today, but to continue moving forwards we feel that a change is required.
Whilst sad news, we’ll be eternally grateful. A big thank you Dimmo and best wishes for the future.
We'll consider our position and look to make a further announcement in due course.
