The Club are delighted to announce the appointment of brothers Jim & Danny Ward to spearhead & lead the Oystermen’s Football Management Team into the forthcoming Ryman League campaign; in addition to first team responsibilities they will also oversee the Player Development through the U21s & U18s respectively.
Well known throughout Kent & with a history of achievement having previously guided & enjoyed success at Ramsgate (96-01 and 04-12) and with Maidstone United in the intervening period within the Kent League ( 01-04) the Wards illustrated their passion, determination & organizational savvy which resulted in their appointment.
Planning for next season can now start in earnest; both the Club & the Wards looking forwards with combined optimism.
The short term goal must be to build on the previous years’ Ryman League performances, measured by the end of season league position, to produce a competitive and more consistent team performance which in turn attracts more supporters through the turnstiles and thus increases commercial revenue; the club have the foundations and ambition to progress but equally recognize the intensity of the task in hand.
On behalf of all at the Club, the Chairman welcomes the Ward brothers to Whitstable.
