Sevenoaks Town First Team Manager Harry Hudson has stepped away from his role to
explore opportunities in professional football and has been working behind the scenes with the Board for several weeks to facilitate a seamless transition and to appoint our new manager.
Hudson said: “It has been a huge honour to manage this fantastic community football club. Earning 26 out of a possible 30 points when I first took over to secure Step 4 status was an unbelievable achievement and we created memories during that run that will stay with me forever.”
“Last season we made history in reaching the furthest the Club has been in both the FA Cup and FA Trophy whilst also achieving the highest Step 4 league position. The win away to Bath City was phenomenal and to earn the right to go toe to toe with Ebbsfleet in the next round was one of my most enjoyable matches I have ever managed.”
“We currently sit in 3rd place in the league without maximising the potential that the current squad has, and I know that the Club could not be in any better hands to now go to the next level.”
“I would like to thank the Board, especially Paul Lansdale, for their unwavering support throughout my tenure – I truly believe I will never work under better people in football”
“Special mention to our fans with whom I have shared some fantastic memories and who contribute so much to the Club”
“To the players who have played under me in the Oaks shirt – thank you”
“Finally, to my staff who I have been lucky enough to work alongside, and who do not always get the credit they deserve, a massive thank you.”
The Club would like to thank Harry for all his hard work and overall contribution to the whole club. We wish Harry every success as he continues his ambitions to coach at the highest level. Thanks for the amazing memories, we will look forward to watching your progress.
The club will announce the new manager later on today. – Up the Oaks!
