KM Football Podcast 36 - Neil Cugley

ByMatthew Panting

It's not every week you get to spend an hour with the longest-serving manager in English football.

So you can imagine there was lots to discuss when Folkestone Invicta boss Neil Cugley joined us in the studio.

He's been at the Fullicks Stadium for 22 years and experienced just about everything during that time.

Cugley recalled the awful day his player Paul Sykes died after collapsing on the pitch and explained how the club survived a financial crisis and came through a CVA stronger than ever.

He admits times have changed since tea cups flew around the changing-room at half-time and players were pinned up against the wall.

From Jimmy Jackson to Johan ter Horst, there are so many great stories to enjoy from a true non-league football legend.
