Merstham FC Manager Departs

Merstham Football Club has confirmed the departure of its management team. 

Frank Wilson and Barry Hayles have left by mutual agreement.  This comes as the Moatsiders were relegated after ending the season last week at the bottom of the Isthmian Premier Division table.  The Club has thanked both Frank and Barry for their hard work and wishes them well for the future. 

Merstham FC are currently taking applications for the position of First Team Manager which must be received by Friday’s closing date.

End of Football Season Update: Merstham FC Relegated

Crawley Town lost 2-0 away to Mansfield Town on Saturday.  With just three games left to play this season, the Reds meet Sutton United tomorrow at Gander Green Lane.

It was the last game of the season for many of our local teams, which didn’t end well for Merstham FC.  Merstham had to win at home to Carshalton Athletic to stand a chance of staying in the Isthmian Premier Division next season.  It wasn’t to be for the Moatsiders however, who lost 2-1 and will be relegated after ending the season at the bottom of the table.

It was better news for Horsham who won 3-2 away to East Thurrock United and finish in the middle of the table.

Elsewhere despite losing their last matches on Saturday, both Redhill and Horley finish the season in 6th and 7th place respectively in the Combined Counties Premier Division.
