Acting Herne Bay chairman Bill Dordoy says the club won’t rush into naming a replacement for Trevor Kennett.
The long-serving committee man has stepped up from his role as vice-chairman – a post he has held since 1997 – but confirmed he has no interest in doing the chairman’s job permanently,
Mr Kennett stepped down two weeks ago, following a disagreement with the rest of the committee on how to address the club’s disciplinary record.
Mr Dordoy said: “We are not talking to anyone at the moment but are looking for a figurehead to come in and help us. It is not just about money, it also has to be the right person because we are a close-knit group and all local people.”
Bay’s 4-1 home win over Three Bridges on Tuesday night, seemingly ended any relegation fears, leaving the club 14 points clear of the bottom three.
Mr Dordoy added: Sam (Denly) is under no pressure. Last season we finished with 41 points and we have now got 44 with 11 matches left.
“Our objective at the start of the season was all about consolidating and staying in the league and we look set to achieve that. The under-21s and under-18s are both having a good season, as well.”
Defender Calum McGeehan has re-signed for the club, having left last summer but Danny Walder has left to rejoin Tonbridge. He made 41 appearances, scoring nine goals.
Bay travel to Horsham on Saturday and host Corinthian Casuals on Tuesday.
