Assistant manager Nicky Southall leaves Maidstone United

Thursday 10th May 2018

MAIDSTONE UNITED have announced assistant manager Nicky Southall has left the club today.

Southall, 46, was appointed in August 2014 and worked alongside Jay Saunders as the club won back-to-back promotion from the Isthmian Premier to the National League.

Chief Executive Bill Williams told  “Nicky can be proud of the part he has played in one of the clubs most successful periods.

“As a club we’ve taken stock of the last two years and feel the time is right to make changes. It’s now up to Jay to set about making those.

“We thank Nicky wholeheartedly for all he’s done and wish him every success in the next chapter of his career.”

Maidstone United finished their Vanarama National League campaign in the bottom five on 54 points from their 46 games.  The Stones avoided relegation by six points as Woking, Torquay United, Chester and Guiseley all lost their status.

Saunders added: “Nick has been an absolute pleasure to work with and I cannot thank him enough for everything he’s done for me and the team over the last few seasons.

“My priority now is to get a new management team in place and continue building the squad for next year.”
