Chessington & Hook United manager Glen Nichols steps down after 18 months in charge at Chalky Lane
CHESSINGTON & HOOK UNITED begin the search for a new manager after Glen Nichols stepped down from the role after 18 months in charge at Chalky Lane.
The Surrey club join Tooting Bec (who groundshare Tooting & Mitcham United’s Imperial Fields ground in Morden) and Westside (Colliers Wood United) in the Southern Counties East Football League First Division next season.
“It is with regret that after 18 months in charge I am having to step down as first-team manager at the club,” Nichols told the club website yesterday.
“Unfortunately, a change to personal circumstances means that I cannot give the commitment that the role both requires and deserves.
“I’d like to place on record my thanks to (the club) for giving me my first senior role and to all of the players and people behind the scenes that have helped me immensely during very difficult times for everyone, during my tenure.
“Some good progress was made within the past couple of months and it would have been nice to have completed a full season but it wasn’t to be.
“I hope that I leave behind some good foundations to build upon with a young, hungry squad of players and I wish the club every success in the future.”
Nichols confirmed that he will continue to be involved within the youth set-up of the club.
