It's disapointing that things didn't work out with a joint-manager, says Beckenham Town boss Jason Huntley

Thursday 03rd September 2015

BECKENHAM TOWN have confirmed that they have put Jason Huntley back in sole charge of team affairs from today.

Joint player-manager John-Paul Collier and assistant managers Mark Dacey and Marc Cumberbatch have parted company by mutual consent after being appointed by the club in June.

Beckenham Town were knocked out of The FA Cup in the Preliminary Round last weekend, losing 4-0 at home to league rivals Greenwich Borough.

The club are in 12th place in the Southern Counties East Football League table after only three games, winning one, drawing one and losing the other.

Huntley told “It’s disappointing that things didn’t work out as we would all have hoped after what was a very encouraging pre-season.

“On behalf of the club I would like to publically thank them for all their time and efforts.

“We naturally wish them all the best for the future.”

Huntley now resumes in sole charge of the club’s managerial duties which start with putting behind last Saturday’s FA Cup exit at the hands of Greenwich Borough and getting his squad prepared for Saturday’s trip to Southern Counties Combination outfit AFC Uckfield in The FA Vase First Qualifying Round.

Meanwhile, Jamie Marshall has received a six-match ban by The London Football Association, which starts on Wednesday 9 September.

Club secretary, Peter Palmer added: “Whilst I fully appreciate the circumstances, I still think the punishment is very harsh.”
