Former Ebbsfleet United boss Kevin Watson has today been announced as the new Manager at Billericay, replacing Jamie O’Hara.
A Club Statement reads;
“On completion of a thorough selection process, involving circa 50 candidates, BTFC have pleasure in announcing that Kevin Watson has been appointed as our men’s first team manager with immediate effect. Kevin brings a wealth of playing, coaching and managerial experience to the club. He shares our one club vision and the board’s ambitions for Billericay Town FC. Kevin will be joined by Tristan Lewis as assistant manager.
We’d like to take this opportunity to thank Danny Brown and Ash Goss for their excellent work in standing in at a critical time. They gave us the space to be able to work through the managerial selection diligently. They are a credit to the club and will return to their roles in the U23 and Colts set-up. Thank you gents.
We’d also like to thank the high calibre of candidates that applied for their interest in Billericay Town and, in several cases, taking the time to talk to us. We wish you all well for the future, except when you’re playing against BTFC of course.
Final thanks are to the fans, despite a few growing understandably a little restless at times, you continue to standby the club. This is your club and we firmly believe that in Kevin we have found a manager that can take us forward and make us all proud to be part of the BTFC family.”
