Dartford FC keep faith with joint-managers Adam Flanagan and Jamie Coyle

By Steve Tervet

Dartford have confirmed Adam Flanagan and Jamie Coyle will continue as joint-managers.

There was speculation about their future following the Darts' 2-1 defeat to Oxford City on the final day of the season.

That result meant they missed out on the play-offs and Flanagan's post-match interview had fans wondering if the pair would carry on.

He said: "We’ve got to have a meeting with the club on Monday and see if they want to move forward with us for next year.

"If they do, we feel this has been the season that’s opened our eyes."

Dartford's board issued a statement on Tuesday to clear things up.

It read: "Following our scheduled end of season management meeting last night, the board can confirm that Adam Flanagan and Jamie Coyle will continue in the role and were keen to start preparing for next season.

"We all acknowledged the disappointing end to the season but a top-half finish, and being only marginally outside the play-offs, was not far away from where we expected to be in such a transitional season.

"Following on from Tony Burman was never going to be easy but Adam and Jamie are committed to achieving this and to this club wholeheartedly.

"With a revised budget giving them a little more flexibility, new player targets were discussed and a busy summer of player recruitment can be expected."
