Margate haved confirmed that chairman Alistair Bayliss has stepped down from his position with immediate effect.
A statement on the club’s website reads as follows:
Having taken on the role in 2016, Alistair guided the club through one of its toughest periods, dedicating unlimited amounts of time, resource and energy to stabilise the club and its future. This included the appointment of promising young Manager Steve Watt, who alongside his coaching staff of Steve Brown and Mike Sandmann, is building one of the most exciting squads seen at Hartsdown Park. Construction of a new 3G football pitch to turn the club into a seven-day-a-week venue open to the whole community and investing heavily in the fan experience to recognise and reward the loyalty of supporters.
At the start of the New Year, Alistair has made the decision to step down and it is one that, with a mixture of regret and respect, the Club and Board have accepted.
