Matt Wyatt has cast doubt on his Sittingbourne future after revealing he doesn’t know if he and Nick Davis will be in charge next season.

The joint-managers have led Brickies to mid-table security in Ryman League, Division 1 South but are yet to hear whether they will be kept on. Wyatt believes they deserve to continue but is taking nothing for granted.

He said: “I don’t know what’s happening. We were told our main objective was to stay in the league, which we’ve nearly achieved, then we could sit down with the committee and have a chat.

“Two months ago I would have imagined we’d be kept on but having seen what’s happened to my good friend Tim Dixon, getting sacked at Ramsgate, nothing would surprise me.

“I think me and Nick have done a fantastic job when you think of the situation we inherited with three points out of 21, plus there were a lot of things behind the scenes we had to deal with."

Wyatt is waiting for chairman Maurice Dunk to make the first move with Sittingbourne 12 points clear of the relegation zone despite a 2-0 defeat at Three Bridges on Tuesday.

He added: “With the greatest of respect, Maurice has to come to me. It’s my opinion that if somebody wants you, they come to you."

Sittingbourne play strugglers Redhill at home on Thursday and host second-placed Leatherhead on Saturday.
