Former Gill to  lead the Oysters!

Nicky Southall has today been appointed the new Manager of Whitstable Town FC; the Board having met twice in the last few days to consider the options, decided to appoint former Gills favorite to his first managerial position alongside current interim manager Richard Langley.

Despite a difficult period & inheriting the previous incumbents’ players, Southall & Langley are keen to impress upon their new charges the need for greater professionalism, desire & determination such as was shown by yesterdays Man of The Match local boy James Morrish.

Southall is keen to add to the squad to improve upon the Teams previous best 14th place in their inaugural year within the Ryman League, some 5 seasons ago, whilst Town still maintain the ambitions of earlier this season; additionally, Southall & Langley want the Club to connect far better within the local community in a further attempt to encourage both business support & increased fan base.

The Chairman, on behalf of the Club, wishes to thank those that expressed an interest in managing the club going forward; but commented that It’s a fantastic opportunity for Nicky, to carve out a role within the Club and establish himself in Non League management as Nicky has a wealth of senior football experience & contacts within the game and will be assisted by the experienced Richard Langley whom we believe together could make a formidable partnership.
