Thursday 24th November 2016

SPORTING CLUB THAMESMEAD have confirmed that Lee Hill will take charge of the club again for the game against Orpington on Saturday.

The club axed joint-managers Danny Joy and Ross Baker following their 3-0 defeat at Orpington last weekend.

Sporting Club Thamesmead remain second-from-bottom in the Southern Counties East Football League First Division table, with a playing record of one win, three draws and eight defeats in the league.

They only have Lewisham Borough below them in the table and Ray Simpson’s side have lost all 19 games in all competitions this season.

Meanwhile, Joy and Baker took charge of Sporting Club Thamesmead in the summer and took charge of 18 games, winning three, drawing three and losing 12 in all competitions after taking over from Hill.

“It is with sadness that we announce that Ross Baker and Danny Joy have left the club by mutual agreement,” said a club statement on Monday.

“The committee would like to publicly thank Ross and Danny for their efforts during their time with us and we sincerely wish them all the very best for the future.”

It is unclear at the moment just how long Hill will resume managerial duties as he aims to improve matters on the pitch.

Chairman Sam Taylor added: “Lee will be in the dug-out on Saturday and I’m afraid there’s nothing further to add at the moment.”

The Acre welcome Orpington for the return league game at Bayliss Avenue on Saturday.
