Ebbsfleet United FC have announced today that manager Kevin Watson will depart the club on expiration of his contract at the end of May.
Kevin joined the club as assistant to Garry Hill in October 2019, taking control as interim manager after two matches on Hill’s departure.
Three wins and two draws from six matches saw Kevin contracted to the role of manager until the end of the season.
A statement on the Club website reads;
The club would like to place on record its thanks to Kevin and his staff for their efforts to stabilise the season, achieving 17 points from nine matches leading into the lockdown and eventual cancellation of the season.
Kevin was appointed to the role under difficult circumstances and after a poor start to the season. The club would like to thank him for stepping in and stabilising results in the New Year prior to the premature end to the season the global coronavirus pandemic necessitated.
The club wishes Kevin all the best in the future and are grateful for his efforts during his tenure here at Ebbsfleet United FC.
Director of football Steve Lovell continues to oversee recruitment and retention. The club will provide an update on the future football performance structure in due course.
Just been told my contract at @EUFCofficial isn’t going to be renewed. Naturally I’m extremely disappointed with this news but thats football I guess 🤷♂️
I would like to thank everyone, staff, players and supporters who have been superb since I joined. Good luck going forward 👍⚽️
