Tring Athletic have announced the departure of several people from the club, after what they describe as a ‘hostile attempt to take over the running of the club by a group of individuals.’
Manager Kevin Christou tweeted this morning that he had been sacked by the Hertfordshire club by email. Tring are currently 2nd in the Spartan South Midlands Football League Premier Division.
A club statement this morning reads: “Due to a hostile attempt to take over the running of the club by a group of individuals, including some former committee members, the committee have removed several persons from within the club with immediate effect. This includes the first-team manager and his staff, and a number of the first-team squad.
“We hope that all supporters will continue to remain loyal as we fight to overcome this attempted takeover. Some members have received correspondence not originated by the existing club committee and this should be ignored with any questions directed to the club.
“A further statement will be issued in due course.”
