VCD Athletic have appointed their former player Nick Davis as their new manager.
The Isthmian South East Division side parted ways with former boss Keith McMahon last month and have now made the decision to name Davis as his successor.
The Vickers released this statement:
“After much deliberation VCD Athletic are pleased to announce the appointment of Nick Davis as first-team manager.
“Nick is a former Vickers player who spent a number of successful seasons with us before moving up to Isthmian League and Conference level, before gaining management experience at Sittingbourne and Ramsgate.
“He is well acquainted with and well respected at VCD and we are sure his appointment will add to our determination in building a stronger and more united club, working together to bring greater success than we have enjoyed in recent years.
“We are pleased to announce another recent addition at the club, this being an Academy, which is a first at VCD Athletic.
“We have been lacking in the development of young players recently and we hope his experience will facilitate the development of our youth section into a natural progression into senior football.
“The club will give Nick every assistance possible in his new venture and we are confident that he will be a great addition to the club going forward.
“We received a number of applications for the vacant post and would like to thank all those people that took the time to send in their CV’s with a view to joining us and now, having made our decision, wish them every success in the future.”
Davis was James Collins’ assistant manager at Faversham Town last season following a similar role at Phoenix Sports and the top jobs at Ramsgate and Sittingbourne.
As yet there is no start date for the 2020/21 Campaign but an announcement is expected from the FA next week to further clarify matters.
