Martin Kuhl has today left his role as manager of Basingstoke Town by mutual consent.
The 54-year-old leaves Town with both parties agreeing this is the correct move for him and for the future of the club, as chairman Terry Brown explained:
“I’d like to begin by thanking Martin for all his efforts and hard work since joining the club and it is a shame that in these difficult circumstances the club find ourselves in, Martin was unable to replicate the success he has had elsewhere. As a club, it was a difficult decision to make, as we are all too aware that during the time of his stewardship our off-field matters have affected the playing side, with Martin having to work under very limited resources.
“The term ‘mutual consent’ is often a linked synonym for the manager being sacked in football, but this is a truly joint decision. We would like to thank Martin for his efforts and we’ve no doubt that his illustrious career in football will continue.”
Assistant manager Dan Brownlie has been asked to take over training duties and the away fixture at AFC Totton on Saturday.
