The club has parted company with First Team Manager, Des Bulpin. His assistant Nick Andrews will assume the role of First Team Manager with immediate effect.
Chairman Clive Cabble said ‘the club is indebted to Des for his commitment and hard work in building a new team following the upheaval during the summer. We have a young, enthusiastic and skilful side capable of competing in the Western League and Des has played a huge part in bringing them to where they are today. Off the field however, there are differences of opinion over how the club is run and clashes of personality which the committee believe are irreconcilable. These are potentially detrimental to the atmosphere both in the dressing room and throughout the club.
We are delighted to appoint Nick to this prestigious role and he has the full backing of all the committee in meeting the challenges ahead. Further announcements will follow as Nick puts his support team in place. We wish Des well for the future.’
