Trio quit Whitstable due to "family reasons"

Monday 17th July 2006
Applications are being accepted for the vacant position of reserve team manager at Kent League club Whitstable Town.

Simon Kay along with his team of Peter and Colin Budge have decided to take a break from football, all for family reasons.

Kay told “I shall still be involved with the football club.   I just feel that after running at least two sides since I packed up playing at 28 I wanted to take a break and spend a bit more time with my family.

“I know the timing is not the best but both Peter and Colin tried their very best to get me to stay on for one more season.

“Like me they have family reasons for stepping aside at the moment, but who knows given a season or so we will no doubt be missing the involvement with the lads big time.”

Peter Budge added: “Both my brother and I need to take a break for purely family reasons, hopefully we will both be involved with the club on the football side in the not to distant future, but now wee need to take some time out.”
