Neil Smith says he is saddened by his departure as Bromley manager.
The former Gillingham and Fulham midfielder was announced yesterday as leaving the National League side, having led them for over 200 games.
A statement from Smith on the club’s website begins: “I’m saddened to be leaving Bromley Football Club. I still believed we could have finished in the play-offs, given we’re now in 7th place, and I am disappointed I couldn’t finish what I felt I had started this season.
“It’s been a great and unforgettable ten years at the club for me, initially coming in with Mark Goldberg as his assistant and fighting relegation in the Conference South, to then turning things around and reaching the play-offs, followed by winning the league title the following year.
“I’m also proud that since I became manager in 2016, we have established ourselves in the National League, competing with some big clubs and often getting the better of them.”
