Whitstable Town chairman Gary
Johnson said he took the decision to sack Justin Luchford with a
"heavy heart" as he had been his "biggest sponsor" during his time
with the club.
Mr Johnson relieved Luchford of his
role at training on Tuesday night and revealed: "The decision was
taken based on the current results and league position, plus a
couple of other off-field issues.
"I did it with a heavy heart
because I was Justin’s biggest sponsor at the club and have always
worked hard to support his work.
"It was in the best interests of
everybody. I didn’t want to see him go but we have set up a tight
ship here. We have excellent players and we hope to retain them but
the club need a team.
"We desperately need points on the
board, people coming through the gate and for the morale to
improve. Hopefully everyone – supporters and players – will now
rally around Richard Langley and Nicky Southall."
Mr Johnson revealed he had received plenty of interest in the
role within 24 hours but added: "There is nobody in the wings.
We’ll look to get through a few games before we decide what
direction to go in."
