Ebbsfleet United have sacked manager Garry Hill after 11 months in charge.
The former Dagenham & Redbridge and Woking boss took the reins last November following the departure of Daryl McMahon, going on to lead Fleet to 8th in the Vanarama National League despite off-field issues surrounding the club. The 59-year-old recently admitted the current campaign has been his most difficult in almost three decades of management.
Ebbsfleet are currently bottom of the National League with ten points from their first 16 games. Part of a club statement reads:
‘We all regret that positive results this season have not been forthcoming and the reluctant decision to seek a new direction has been made with the club’s National League preservation uppermost in our minds.’
Assistant manager Kevin Watson has been placed in charge of first-team affairs and will take charge of the side for this Saturday’s home match versus Maidenhead United.
