Faversham Town part company with Danny Chapman and Phil Miles with directors unhappy with the direction that the club was going in both on and off the pitch

Wednesday 23rd October 2019

FAVERSHAM TOWN begin the search for a new management team after parting company with joint-managers Danny Chapman and Phil Miles.


The pair took over from the long-serving Ray Turner on 15 November 2018 and depart Salters Lane following a board meeting after their 1-0 home defeat to Herne Bay in the Velocity Trophy last night.

The Lilywhites are in thirteenth-place in the Isthmian League South East Division table with 10 points from nine games.

Chairman Paul Bennett thanked the pair for their contribution and confirmed the decision was taken at a board meeting last night.

“We’d like to thank Phil and Danny for the effort they have put into trying to rebuild a team following the difficulties experienced last season,” Mr Bennett said in a statement.

“They came in at a difficult time and I acknowledge that it has not been an easy task.

“I don’t wish to go into details but the directors were unhappy with the direction that the club was going in, both on and off the pitch and it was felt best to address that now while there is time to rectify it this season.

“We wish Phil and Danny all the best for the future.”

Clive Walker will take the team until a new manager has been appointed.

Coaches wishing to be considered for the role as first team manager should contact the chairman Paul Bennett via chairman@favershamtownfc.co.uk.

A decision on the new manager will be made shortly.

Faversham Town are next in action when they travel to Herne Bay in the Kent Senior Cup First Round next Tuesday, 29 October 2019 (19:45).
