Crockenhill boss Steve Deverux strengthens his management team

Friday 19th December 2014
CROCKENHILL manager Steve Deverux has unveiled that Mark Horan will be joining him as assistant manager in the New Year.

The Crocks are sitting in the bottom three in the Pain & Glory Sports Kent Invicta League table, having collected three wins, four draws and nine defeats this season.

They are at home to ninth-placed Bridon Ropes tomorrow.  The Charlton based side are currently without their assistant manager Kris Hollidge due to his wife recently giving birth to their son.

“I am delighted to announce Mark Horan will be joining me as assistant manager in the New Year,” said Devereux, who took over from Craig Clark, who is now assistant manager at Erith Town after a short spell coaching at Crock’s league rivals Gravesham Borough.

“He has done a great job with the under 16s and has a wealth of non-league playing experience for the likes of Dartford, Erith & Belvedere and amongst others.

“He is a no nonsense character, who I’m delighted to have on board.

“Micky Pearce has also joined the club as first team coach.  Micky had to retire early from the game aged 25 due to injury.

“He has playing experience at Maidstone and Ashford and is looking to develop his coaching.”

Explaining his 9th December switch to struggling Erith Town, who are second-from-bottom in the Southern Counties East Football League table, level on 12 points with basement side Deal Town, Clark said: “Having been involved on and off with the club for 30 years, I’m glad to get the opportunity to help them back to winning ways.

“I’ve seen positives and I feel I have a lot to contribute.

“Ennio Gonnella, the manager, is working hard to turn things round and I’m sure together we’ll start to get some good results.”
