The ‘Board’ of Whitstable Town FC are pleased to announce that last night they appointed Will Graham as the next Football Manager of the Club.

Graham (30) whom was First Team Coach under the previous regime was appointed ahead of a dozen others that expressed an interest in the managerial vacancy despite the post not being advertised!

His immediate remit is to form the basis of a new squad, together with a new Management Team; after which he will Manage First Team affairs whilst overseeing the development of the Clubs prospects of the future via the U18s & U21s.

‘Will Graham, although a rookie deserves the opportunity (stated Chairman Gary Johnson) & certainly has the Club at heart having previously been involved a few years ago; he’s local and he is a UEFA A licensed Coach with connections throughout Kent. He is also ambitious and it appears hungry with a thirst to develop the potential within the Club, something that excited the Clubs ‘Board’……everyone has to start somewhere so let’s get behind Will and give him every chance of success; Whitstable Town FC certainly do not lack ambition, but they give a chance to folk to rejuvenate themselves or emerge within the game’.

Graham said ‘I’m an inspiring young coach, every manager in history started somewhere and I believe with my desire this is my opportunity to succeed as a manager and make my stamp on the game’.

Training & Trial dates will be announced shortly but any player whom believes they have what it takes are invited to send their playing CV and contact details to Will via secretary@whitstabletownfc.co.uk

The Clubs first confirmed Pre-Season Fixture is the Bruce Smith Shield against local rivals Herne Bay at The Belmont on Saturday July 11th.
