Kent County League

First Team Manager departs Kings Hill FC

Kings Hill F.C. have confirmed that Aaron Braithwaite has stepped down as First Team Manager after two years in the role.

The Kent County side, who led the Premier Division table when Covid stopped play this season, have released this statement:

“As a club we are disappointed to see Aaron leave but fully understand and respect his decision.

“The 1st Team have been well placed to challenge for the Kent County League Premier Division title in each of the last two seasons before they were both curtailed due to Covid. We would like to thank Aaron for all of his efforts, and we wish him every success for the future. The search for a replacement will now commence.

Club Chairman Barry Gethin said “Aaron has done a fantastic job for the club over the past two seasons with a great group of players, he has stabilised the1st Team set up and turned us into title contenders. On the pitch, the curtailment of both seasons under his leadership has proved frustrating, as has our inability as yet, despite our intensive efforts as a club, to make necessary developments to the infrastructure in order to meet our ambitions for the adult section. I wish him all the very best for the future.”

The news came on the day that League rivals Staplehurst Monarchs and Faversham Strike Force were promoted into the SCEFL.
