Club Statement - 1st Team Manager



The club can confirm that first-team manager Matt Longhurst has today left his position by mutual consent.

During his four years in the role, Matt guided East Grinstead Town FC to our highest position in the club’s history and we are grateful for his undisputed commitment and hard work.

However, results this season have been disappointing and haven’t met the expectations of either Matt or the club’s committee and it was mutually agreed that a change was needed.

We wish Matt all the best for the future.

We have asked assistant manager Grant Hearn and club captain Drew Cooney to look after the team on Saturday when we play Three Bridges and next Tuesday’s game against Whitehawk.

We will make a further statement once a new permanent manager has been appointed.
