Justin Day Stands Down as Burton Grove Manager

Author: Ryan Mills, 24/11/19

Managerial merry-go-round as Day joins Kerr and Mehmet in stepping down as gaffer

Burton Grove secretary and manager Justin Day has announced that he has stepped down from both positions with immediate effect. Day has been involved with the Division Two club for 15 years originally joining the Grove as a player in the 2004/2005 season before taking over a player-manager five years later. He led the team to two pieces of silverware during his reign in charge as they lifted the Peter Pain Division Two League Cup on two occasions, firstly in 2012 thanks to a 1-0 victory over Lydd Grasshoppers before repeating the feat four years later beating promoted side Prince Albert in the final.

Day leaves his post to tun his attention to a new challenge to be announced in the near future but leaves with a lot of good memories. On a statement published on the Burton Grove FC website, Day admitted it was a tough decision to take the next step but wants to see how far he can progress in the game.

Day said: "I've will always have Burton in my heart but it's time to move on. I have been offered a chance to see how far I can go and I am going to try it. I would like to thank everyone who has played for the club under my management and everyone who has helped me, especially Dean Spurrell.

This news continues a theme of managerial changes this week with two other Sunday League teams making personnel changes in the dugout. Aldington have brought in Paul Guest to take over from previous manager Paul Kerr who stepped down last week after more than two years in charge, while Ali Mehmet has left Horsebox Bars after his short spell as manager, with players Tony Norris and Aaron Cook replacing his at the helm.
