Club Chairman, Kevin Hake released this statement;

“It is with a heavy heart I can confirm the departure of Scott Lindsey as First Team Manager of Chatham Town with immediate effect.

“Scott has been brilliant at the club since he joined and leaves us in a lot stronger position than when he came.

“I think it says a lot about the club and him as a person that he was offered other non league jobs but turned them down, but the chance to work back in the football league was one he had to take.

“I would personally like to wish Scott all the best in the future and he will always receive a good welcome back at the Chats.

“Carl Laraman and myself will work together as interim managers until a suitable person is found.”

Chatham Town appointed Lindsey into the role in October 2019 where since he has won 20 of his 28 League games in charge.

The Chats captain, Jack Evans, led the praise for his now former boss

“Back where he belongs after a very tough few years for him! On behalf on me & the boys I’d like to thank the gaffer for everything. On a personal note he Made me full back in love with football & We all was very lucky to have him in the first place. Gutted but it’s only right!”

Chatham Town kick-off their league season at Deal Town on July 31st.
