"Last night I was sacked as first team manager of Redbridge FC.
Alot of planning, time and effort had gone in by me and my staff. New players had committed themselves to the club, some existing players had been persuaded to stay and some had been let go however; four days before pre season was due to commence, I was hit with last nights bombshell !
I am angry and upset, mainly because of the timing and now I face missing my first pre season in 18 years. If things were not right, then I believe I should have been told in May, not four days before we were due to meet back.
When I first accepted the job at Redbridge, it was to re-stabalise the club after alot of off pitch turmoil and make people proud to play for Redbridge again. That I acheived and although results could have been better, I firmly believed I was the man for the job. With the infrastructure at the club solid and the playing staff strengthened, next season was one of great optimism. Unfortunately, I will not get that chance.
I will re-appear again, when, who know's but I am a good honest and determined fella and after removing those many daggers in my back, I won't be down for too long.
Thanks for the support, effort and good luck messages.
