Hampton & Richmond Borough have announced the appointment of Gary McCann as first team manager.
McCann has been in charge of Hendon for more than a decade. This month, he led them to the promotion final of the Bostik League Premier where they were cruelly beaten on penalties by Dulwich Hamlet – an experience the Beavers know only too well.
McCann, who is 45, was interviewed on Thursday by Chairman Graham Wood and Vice-Chairman Jac Le Bars.
Wood told the club’s website: “Our initial thoughts on likely candidates and subsequent research put Gary at the top of our list.
“The vacancy was advertised but we knew Gary was under contract to Hendon, so we requested permission to speak to him. Permission was granted and we are grateful for Hendon’s co-operation throughout the process.
“Following today’s interview, we are now fully satisfied he is the right man for the job and are pleased to announce that terms have been agreed and Gary is Hampton’s new manager.”
