Whitehawk FC have today, Wednesday 17th February, parted company with Manager Steve King by mutual consent.
Following The Hawks’ 2-1 defeat against Eastbourne Borough last night, the club’s board have decided that our recent poor form which has seen us pick up just 9 points out of the last 36 available, whilst falling down to 13th position, is unacceptable and both parties recognise this.
Club President Chris Gargan has said the decision taken today was one taken with a Heavy Heart and added “It’s a results business and, with nine points from the last 12 games, league results have not been commensurate with the level of investment the board have put in.”
We give our thanks to Steve, who was appointed manager in 2014, for all he has done for the club in that period of time, including avoiding relegation in our first ever season in the Conference South, reaching the Play-Off Final last season and also for our run in this season’s FA Cup, which saw us take Football League Two side Dagenham and Redbridge to a Second Round Replay at Home on Live TV.
Assistant Manager Pablo Asensio will take over running of the First Team until further notice and his first game will be this Saturday at home to Havant and Waterlooville.
