Cugley steps down

Don't worry, Invicta fans, only from the board

Folkestone Invicta have confirmed that manager Neil Cugley has stepped down- from his role as a director.

Cugley has combined the Director of Football role with his managerial responsibilities for five years- he has been the first team manager for more than twenty- but has decided to confine his duties only to the bench in future.

Speaking to Kent Online, the long-serving boss explained:

“I was going to come off (the board) earlier in the season but there were certain allegations – that were unfounded – and I felt I couldn’t just walk away because I’d have been (seen to be) guilty as charged.

“I stayed on a bit longer and waited to see if they did call an EGM but they never did. We had our AGM a couple of weeks ago and it all went very well for the club so we move on. It was the perfect time to get that out of the way and get back to the football."
