Chatham Town part company with Paul Piggott

Thursday 21st September 2017

CHATHAM TOWN have sacked manager Paul Piggott with the club in the bottom four in the Southern Counties East Football League Premier Division table.

The club were relegated from the Isthmian League last season and have won one and drawn two of their eight league games at the lower level this season.

Piggott took charge of the club in November 2016 after Darren Anslow left the club after 12 games in charge.

Piggott, a successful manager during his time at Hollands & Blair, struggled in the hot-seat at Maidstone Road, winning six, drawing nine and suffering 22 defeats in his 37 games in charge of the club.

“We regret to announce that Chatham Town FC have parted company with manager Paul Piggott,” said a club statement.

“The club would like to thank Paul for his commitment and efforts throughout his time at Chatham Town.

“The club has decided that it was time for a change and we would like to wish Paul the very best in the future.

“Director of football Steve Binks has been appointed as interim manager until a permanent manager is appointed.”

Chatham Town host Kensington Borough in The Buildbase FA Vase Second Qualifying Round on Saturday (15:00) and the struggling club will be looking to appoint a new manager as soon as possible.
