Greenwich Borough rocked by Taylor's swift departure

Friday 06th July 2018

GREENWICH BOROUGH caretaker manager Aaron Taylor has quit the club before taking charge of a match.

Chairman Luke Simpson appointed Taylor as caretaker manager on 25 May but has stepped down today without taking charge of a pre-season warm-up ahead of their Bostik South East Division campaign that gets underway on Saturday 11 August.

“Over 10 years of hard work and determination in the game has led to this proud moment in my life,” Taylor said following his appointment.

“I promise to you all to that I will give blood, sweat and tears to make this magnificent club successful.

“I cannot wait for the new season in the Isthmian League to get underway. Let’s do this.”

Taylor was in caretaker charge for just 42 days and said: “After a small time at the club I have decided to step down from my caretaker first team manager role at Greenwich Borough FC.

“I am very grateful for the initial opportunity but I did what I felt was best for my career and to move in the direction. I want to manage and coach.”

Greenwich Borough have yet issued a statement on Taylor’s swift departure from the Middle Park Avenue outfit or whom will be taking over.

Two women heavily involved in recruitment in central London are believed to be on the board at the Eltham based club.
