Richard Langley won't be applying manager's job at Whitstable Town
Uncertainty continues to hang over the Belmont as managerless
Whitstable brace themselves for the clash with fellow strugglers
Corinthian Casuals this weekend.
Caretaker bosses Richard Langley (pictured) and Nicky Southall
are preparing to take charge of the Oystermen for a fourth time
since the departure of former boss Justin Luchford.
Langley served as Jim Ward’s assistant at Ramsgate before
working under Justin Luchford at Horsham and following the former
Faversham boss to the Belmont. He was sacked by Dover Athletic six
games into the 2004/05 season and insists that a return to
management, eight years later, is not on his agenda.
He said: "It’s about what you want in life. If you look at my
time as manager at Dover, it wasn’t a great time. You’ve also got
to take into account the time factor. Can I give it the correct
amount of time that it needs to fill that role properly?
"Nicky Southall is more suited to it and he wants to do it. I’m
happy to work together but I probably won’t be applying for it.
Maybe I couldn’t give it what it needs and Nicky has more spare
time than me during the day."
New signings Gareth Cornhill and Sean Raggett should both play
some part against Corinthian. However, Jake Beecroft (hamstring) is
expected to miss out.
