First team management change
Saturday June 10th 2017
Glen Golby has asked for the following statement to be released regarding a change in the management of the first team:
After it become clear we were going to be promoted to the Isthmian League for this season. Steve and I have had many discussions and it has been decided we feel we need more help.
Therefore we have decided to bring Justin Gardner (pictured above) to the club who joins us as joint manager alongside myself. Steve will still be involved on day-to- day decisions like signing players and starting line ups but will take a step back on match days to concentrate on playing.
We had spoken to a few different parties about their availability, one of these was Justin who had numerous offers on the table but we have managed to convince him with our personal plans as well as the clubs long term plan. Justin is an experienced Isthmian manager having managed Aveley FC for many years, before being joint first team manager at Billericay winning the Ryman league cup and winning the Under 21s Isthmian league title last season.
Having played for and against Justin I know personally how passionate about football he is and brings with him a wealth of experience at this level and a great contact list that will only help Barking FC establish themselves at this level
Please join me in welcoming Justin to the club.
