Herne Bay managers John Embery and Jermaine Darlington have resigned, with the directors saying the club’s future is uncertain.

Bay are currently 16th in the Bostik League South East Division and just before Saturday’s game with Whyteleafe, the club’s directors released this statement announcing their management team had departed:

The social media trolls have finally won the day. The management team have been hounded out of the club and as such the club are playing Whyteleafe with Anthony Deer taking the team.

Whether we will have a team to field next Saturday is in the lap of the footballing gods. Relegation back to the SCEFL looks to be inevitable.

Whether there will be a club next season is unclear. The board have put so much effort over the years but the past two weeks has become so demoralising.

These keyboard warriors who hide behind false titles post what they like without knowing the full facts, criticising the board and their decisions and it is these individuals who have destroyed this football club. Hopefully we can all get behind and support Anthony for the remaining games.
