Holmesdale begin the process of finding a new manager after Andy Constable decides to step down at the end of the season

Thursday 04th April 2019

HOLMESDALE begin the search for a new manager after Andy Constable has decided to step down from his first managerial role at the end of the season.

Constable took joint-charge with Kevin Levett in January 2019 and the pair were in charge of seven games together, winning three and losing three, but Levett stepped down on 11 March owing to family and work commitments.

Since then, the Bromley based side have failed to pick up a win, losing three of Constable’s four games in sole charge.

Holmesdale suffered a 2-0 home defeat at the hands of second-from-bottom side Rochester United, which leaves the side in sixth-place in the Southern Counties East Football League First Division table with 47 points on the board, 19 points adrift of leaders Welling Town.

Striker Constable has agreed to take charge of Holmesdale’s last five games of the season, starting with Saturday’s trip to Kent Football United.

“Andy Constable has decided he is to step down at the end of the season as Holmesdale’s manager,” said chairman Ray Tolfrey.

“The club thank Andy for his hard work and commitment in the time he has been in charge.

“We wish him well in the future if he’s not still playing for us next season.

“We now have to start the process of finding a new manager.”
