On the same day Sir Alex Ferguson announces his departure from Manchester United, Hailsham Town have revealed Kenny McCreadie will also step down from his managerial duties.
McCreadie guided the club to promotion from the Sussex County League Division Two last season and achieved a credible 12th-place finish in Division One this year.
However, it has been mutually agreed that, following their final game of the season last weekend, McCreadie will not resume as boss next season.
The club’s statement read, “Hailsham Town F.C would like to announce that after much thought and discussion, they have decided that it is time for a different approach to the football side of the club. Therefore, it has been mutually agreed with Kenny McCreadie to end his term as manager.
“The club would like to put on record their thanks for the work that Kenny has done at Hailsham Town and wish him all the best with his next venture.
“The club will now move to cover the needs within the football aspects and take the necessary steps to appoint people to take charge of the club’s first, Reserve and Youth teams.
“Anybody who feels that they have the organisational football skills to meet the club’s needs should in the first instance contact the club Chairman Peter Coleman, e-mail - email@example.com.”
