Hastings United manager Adam Hinshelwood has left the Bostik League Division One South club to take charge of former side Worthing.
Chris Agutter, who was Hinshelwood’s assistant, has been appointed first team manager with immediate effect and lead the team away to Molesey today (Saturday).
United’s director of football Dean White told the club website: “Obviously we are hugely disappointed with the situation, but when Adam made us aware that due to personal and family reasons, he would like to speak to Worthing about their management vacancy, despite being on contract with our club, we felt we could not stand in his way.
“Adam has been a breath of fresh air since he arrived in June, and has been key in developing a hard working and professional culture at the football club which will be needed for us to progress and achieve long term sustainability moving forward.
“We knew when we appointed a manager of Adam’s quality that we may find it difficult to keep hold of him, However, It’s obviously a surprise to everyone that an approach has come so soon after three months into a three-year contract.
“On behalf of the club, I would like to thank Adam for his service to Hastings United Football Club and also Worthing for the professional way they have conducted themselves throughout the process and wish them both the very best for the future.”
