Whitstable manager Nicky Southall is ringing the changes at The Belmont as he seeks to put his stamp on the club.
Southall (pictured) oversaw an encouraging draw at Ryman League Division 1 South promotion-chasers Crawley Down in his first game and wants a first win when Walton & Hersham visit on Saturday.
The Belmont will have a slightly different feel as the Oystermen will be running out of the current away dressing room, at Southall’s request.
He said: "We have changed things around a bit. Hopefully, we have left the bad old days and bad memories in the old dressing room. It will be a fresh start.
"Hopefully it will stimulate things a little bit. I am a great believer in sports psychology, Sam Allardyce was a big fan of it when I was at Bolton and I was one of his first proteges."
Southall has also switched the dugouts and plans to have the players warm-up in the other half of the pitch and will swap the end they attack in the first half if they win the toss.
He added: "All these things have not done us much good so far, so what’s the harm in trying to change it around a bit?"
Town are awaiting international clearance for ex-Gillingham youth left-back James Brown, who has been playing in Spain.
