Surrey Live say that Antony Williams is ready to re-charge his batteries after stepping down as boss of Isthmian League South Central Division outfit Chipstead – the club having unexpectedly handed the reins to his assistant manager and coach, writes Clive Youlton.
The amiable recruitment manager, who chalked up more than 200 games for the club as a player before returning as boss three years ago, cited increased work commitments and a need to spend more time with his family and two young children for his decision to resign.
“I’ve really enjoyed it at Chipstead but the time involved is extensive and I’ve spent 35 years as a player and a manager so it’s time to take a break,” he said.
“There’s no agenda. I’ve been transparent about it. Already, after making the decision, I have begun to feel more relaxed. I’m thinking about enjoying the summer, not scurrying around organising pre-season and friendlies.
“There are changes internally at the club too so I felt it was the right time to go.”
