After five months at The Belmont, Richard Styles has left his role as Whitstable Town manager.
The former Tunbridge Wells boss announced the news on his Social Media channels while Whitstable revealed the decision with this Club Statement:
“After lengthy discussions with the chairman over the past 24 hours, Richard Styles & Dan Morrin have decided to resign from their management positions at Whitstable Town with immediate effect.
“Richard & Dan have both sent their best wishes to the club moving forwards.
“First team coach Mark Towse has also left the club this evening.
“The club directors would like to thank Richard, Dan and Mark for all of their hard work and commitment since joining in May. We are all disappointed that things did not work out as hoped, but they leave with our best wishes and hopefully they will enjoy successful times in football once again in the future.
“The club will now look to appoint a new manager as soon as possible to help us achieve our objectives of gaining promotion back to the Isthmian League, whilst also helping to develop our young players that are progressing through our strong youth structure and football academy.
“A further statement will be issued in the coming days.”
Whitstable Town are currently in 10th place in the table with their next league fixture away at Stansfeld on Saturday.
Tonight I have handed my resignation At Whitstable Town FC, I feel now is the right time to leave after it’s become clear that there is no longer a united vision going forward between myself and other parties at the club.#TrustTheProcess#RomeWasntBuiltInADay #WeGoAgain
