Thursday 20th July 2017

CROCKENHILL’S preparations for the new season have been dealt a massive blow after their manager quit last night.

Christopher Sundborg said family commitments were the reason for him leaving Wested Meadow.

”It is with a heavy heart that I announce my resignation from Crockenhill,” he said.

“Love the club, love the chairman but it is time to move on.

“I have loved my time at the Crocks and would like to thank Steve (Cullen, chairman) and the Cullen’s for making me feel so welcome at the club.

“Now it’s time to focus my energy and attention on my ever growing family.”

A club statement added: “We was sad to see Chris go and wish him all the best with his family and future.”

Crockenhill finished second-from-bottom in the Southern Counties East Football League First Division table last season, with a playing record of six wins and eight draws from their 36 league outings.

Crockenhill kick-off their new campaign with a home League game against Meridian on Saturday 5 August 2017.

The club have appointed former Cray Wanderers player Uche Ibemere as their new manager, which will be his first manager's job.
