Alan Dowson resigns as Kingstonian manager

4 years ago By Robert Wooldridge

Kingstonian first team manager Alan Dowson has stepped down from the position with immediate effect. 

Dowson, who led the K's to second place in the Ryman League Premier Division in 2013/14, said, "I have given it a lot of thought; I’ve spoken to my family and I believe now is the right time for me to step down as manager, both for myself and the club. I have made a lot of good friends at Kingstonian and have had some great times, which makes the decision a hard one. I am however looking forward to taking a break from football and spending a bit of time with the family. I would like to thank everyone for their support over the past seven and a half years and wish the club all the best for the future."

Kingstonian chairman John Fenwick comments, "The board and I were saddened to receive Alan's resignation from the post of first team manager, and we would like to place on record our utmost appreciation for everything that he has done for the club since his appointment to the role in January 2007 - especially his achievements of leading the club to the Ryman League Division One South title in 2009, the Premier Division playoff final in 2010 and then second place in the Premier Division in the season just ended. We would like to wish Alan the best of luck in his future endeavours. The club will now begin the search for a replacement manager and will make an announcement as soon as is feasible."
