~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

 

After 28 years at Brading, Steve Lawton will be stepping down at the end of this season.

 

 “I’ve loved every minute and consider it an honour to have been given opportunity to manage this fantastic club. When I came as a player all those years ago I never expected to have had the great times we’ve had.  Those that know me know what huge commitments I have outside of football and I can’t commit the time and effort that the club deserves.  I will give everything between now and the end of the season and I’m fully committed to helping the club find a new manager. We have a fantastic committee, a superb pitch and facilities.

 

Again we have had to rebuild the side but there is a good bunch of players there and if they stick together and keep working I’m sure they will be successful over the coming years.

 

Special thanks must go to Mark Cook - top bloke and a great friend - he is also stepping down with me.

 

And the players - some have shown incredible loyalty to me over the years - Valer, Sam Knowles , Scott Lawson have pretty much been with me my whole time as a manager. In recent years Todd Connor, Jacob Treagus and Aaron Bennett have stayed when offers came in to go.

It is time to spend more quality time with my incredibly supportive wife and my two amazing grandkids “

 

 

Chairman Geoff Ruck said  ... "Steve has been an amazing servant to the club and now he needs to take time out with his family. We must now start the difficult task of looking for a new 1st team manager and assistant.
