Kingstonian appoint recently sacked Billericay boss

Kingstonian have recently announced the appointment of Dean Brennan as their new first team manager.

Brennan, who parted company from his job as Billericay boss last month, replaces Leigh Dynan who left the club just four days ago.

Whilst at Hemel Hempstead Town for six years, Brennan secured promotion by winning the Southern League Premier Division title in 2014.

In the 2014/15 season, the former Hitchin, Stevenage, Grays, Lewes, AFC Wimbledon, Hemel, Halesowen and Dunstable player, then took the Tudors to the First Round of the FA Cup for the first time since 1938/39, but ended up losing 3-1 at Bury.

Previous boss Dyan – sacked hours after his side’s 7-1 defeat against Dorking Wanderers making it their sixth straight defeat – spoke to the Surrey Comet, suggesting he would have turned it round.

He said: “It’s been a rollercoaster but I would’ve got K’s in the play-offs even after Saturday.

“I was still on target. That was my remit. I didn’t fail because I’d become a bad manager overnight. I failed because of the injuries.

“I just feel that it was losing key players in bulk in such a short space of time. And we didn’t have the budget people are claiming.”

Assistant manager, Jamie Lawrence, who has also left Kingstonian tweeted: “I’d like to say thank you to Kingstonian and the Gaffa for the chance to be back in football. Sorry it hasn’t gone how I wanted it to go.”

The club’s director, Mark Anderson, stated: “I am totally embarrassed, as should all players, staff and those associated with club in an official capacity.”

 

Following the news of the appointment, fans took to social media to give their thoughts with the majority pleased with it, we also look back at the many replies that came in on the sacking of Dynan a few days ago – take a look at what they said on the next page.
