Management moves in the SCEFL!

We have seen plenty of Management changes within our clubs this season and the last few days can add three more to that list as the SCEFL proves it is never dull on, or off, the pitch!

The most high profile appointment of them all is no doubt that of the incoming Gary Alexander to Glebe. The 40-year-old former Millwall star has previously managed Ashford United and Greenwich Borough and is very familiar with this level having won this League with later in the 2015/15 Campaign.

Alexander was recruited in by Rocky McMillan on Friday but it was the Chairman himself who took to the Dugout 24 hours later, masterminding a 3-1 win for his side at home to Bearsted.

The first game for the new boss comes at K Sports this weekend.

Stansfeld play at Glebe’s home ground and now also need to join them in selecting the right leader, following their Joint Managers leaving the club on Monday. Billy Hamlin and Jamie Phipps had just guided them to a season-best win of 6-2 on Saturday but have made their decision to move on and the hunt for their successor begins.
That was until the following day though when Stansfeld released this Statement.

‘The Stansfeld Committee are delighted to announce, that after numerous conversations Joint Managers Billy Hamlin & Jamie Phipps have reconsidered their resignation and will continue in their positions as Joint Managers of the first team.’

A dramatic few days at Kent Football United has seen Richmond Kissi and Steve Devereux resign with George Jones coming in to replace them. Kissi and Devereux brought and end to their short time at the club on Saturday with Jones quickly making the move over from Erith & Belvedere, where he was Assistant Manager.
