Dartford turn to Tony Burman to steady the ship as club is already receiving expressions of interest from suitably qualified candidates to replace Jamie Coyle and Adam Flanagan
DARTFORD have placed ex-manager-now director Tony Burman as interim manager until a new permanent boss is appointed.
The Darts announced that joint-managers Jamie Coyle and Adam Flanagan resigned last night following their 3-2 defeat at Tonbridge Angels, which leaves the club in the bottom three in the Vanarama National League South, having collected seven points from their first nine games.
Dartford have won just twice in their last 17 games, including last season.
Coyle and Flanagan were in charge for 56 games after replacing Burman last summer. The Darts won 20, drew 20 and lost 20 in all competitions during their tenure at Princes Park. The club finished in tenth-place last season.
“Following the departure of Jamie Coyle and Adam Flanagan last night, we are also able to confirm that goalkeeping coach Andy Young and strength and conditioning coach Harrison Grant have now left the club,” said a club statement.
“We thank them all for their hard work and commitment to Dartford FC since joining and wish them all well in the future.
“We are pleased to announce that Tony Burman will take interim charge of all first-team matters until a new permanent manager is appointed.
“The club is already receiving expressions of interest from suitably qualified candidates and a formal recruitment process will begin in due course.”
Burman’s first game of his third spell in charge of the club will begin with a home game against ninth-placed side Dorking Wanderers on Saturday, 7 September 2019 (15:00).
