Lewes FC can announce that it has parted company with first-team manager, Hugo Langton by mutual consent.
Hugo and the club part on good terms and Hugo wanted to share this message:
“It’s been an unusual time for us all in the last 12 months. I came in to help in the short term and ended up staying on longer, especially to help the club through the pandemic. Whilst we haven’t seen much action on the pitch, I know I leave behind a clearer pathway for young players, which is important to this club. I also know I’ve helped and supported everyone to the best of my ability during these tough times.
“I have always been touched by the kindness of every Lewes fan I have met along the way, and your support and encouragement will never be forgotten, so thank you.
“I’d like firstly to thank my staff Kate Joynes and John McCrae for all their top support, they have done an amazing job. And also, to all the lads who played for me, who gave me everything they could, many of whom will eventually go onto higher things.
“Thank you to Stuart Fuller for all his support and for asking me to help when help was needed. Barry Collins and John Peel too. I wish everyone at the club a successful future”.
The Board would like to place on record its appreciation for the hard work Hugo has put into the role. The pandemic has presented significant challenges to the Club that Hugo handled with integrity, diligence, and professionalism. Chair Stuart Fuller added the following;
“Hugo answered the call when we needed help in February 2020 and has worked diligently behind the scenes for the club in the last twelve months, not just on First Team Management duties but helping in many other aspects. I’ve known Hugo for well over a decade and know that his skills and expertise in the game will be put to good use in the future.”
We wish Hugo all the best of luck in his next position and future endeavours.
An announcement will be made on the search for a new manager in due course.
