The National League’s bottom club Kidderminster Harriers have confirmed that they have parted company with Head Coach Dave Hockaday.
The former Leeds United and Forest Green Rovers coach joined Harriers in October, with the club struggling at the bottom of the National League table.
There were intital successes with wins over Woking and Aldershot, but FA Cup and FA Trophy defeats to Evo-Stik Northern Premier League neighbours Stourbridge were seen as major setbacks.
Harriers have lost their last five games and sit twelve points from safety, having won only two of their twenty six league games this season.
A statement on the club website on Thursday morning confirmed Hockaday’s departure and also announced that “Neither party will make any further comment on the matter”
The statement in full read “Kidderminster Harriers can confirm that Head Coach, Dave Hockaday, has left his post at the club by mutual consent with immediate effect.
Chairman, Rod Brown stated: “We’d like to thank Dave for his hard work and contribution to the club during his time with us. We’ve talked at length and both agree that this is the right move forward.”
Neither party will make any further comment on the matter.
Chief Executive, Colin Gordon will join Chairman Rod in addressing the next steps for the club later today”
