“Cuxton 91 would like to say a massive thank you to Carl, who has been part of the club since it first started in the early 90’s and has managed this current team for 21 years,” said a club statement.

“We can’t thank Carl enough for all the work he has done and wish him all the best for the future.

“We hope to still see Carl floating about here and there at some of our games.”

The Bush Road outfit has appointed Frans Thorley and the highly-experienced Martin Telford, who has managed and coached at a high level, including spells at Tunbridge Wells, Ashford Town and Lordswood.

“Martin also had a spell playing at Aberdeen under Sir Alex Ferguson in his early years so he has all the attributes that are needed in pushing this club forward to where it wants to be," added the statement.

“Also coming in with these two will be player-coach Adam Overton, who comes in with a lot of playing experience at a high level and has a great knowledge of the game.

“Adam is well known around the club as he has had a couple of good seasons with us when we were in the Sunday senior section a few years back.

“He comes to us from K Sports FC and is an intelligent striker, who has lots of goals in him and his experience and leadership will be key to pushing this team forward.

“The whole team can’t wait to get started and are looking forward to the coming season in what looks to be exciting times for the club.”
