Brown quits underperforming Deres

Wednesday 01st November 2006

Halloween proved to be memorable for two Kent League clubs as they begin the search for new managers, writes Stephen McCartney.

Greenwich Borough sacked their manager Peter Garland and his assistant John Kasapi just four and a half hours before the start of their Kent League Cup tie against Sporting Bengal United at Harrow Meadow.

Former Slade Green joint-manager Phil Miles, who was appointed Borough coach during the close season, took over team affairs for the game, which was won courtesy of Dave Hassett scoring the only goal of the game.

And Erith & Belvedere, who slumped to a 1-0 defeat at Sevenoaks Town last night, are now looking for a new manager, following the resignations of player-manager Wayne Brown and coach Warren Hackett.

The underperforming Deres have only picked up two victories in 12 Kent League games this season and are currently in the bottom six - despite Brown insisting his side were gunning for the championship following their opening day win at Beckenham Town.
