Chairman Rob O’Brien has issued the following statement:
Barking FC can confirm that Nick Harding has departed the role of First Team manager. We are extremely grateful to Nick for his contributions to the club, first as a goalkeeper coach and then as manager, with no doubt the highlight being the Errington Challenge Cup victory. Nick departs on this high and will always be welcome back at the club – we wish him the best in any future roles going forward.
The club are delighted to welcome Lee Benson, Glenn Robson and Steve Gaunt who will form our new management team – they will be straight into action this week meeting with the existing group of players as they introduce their plans for the upcoming season.
