Club Statement – Jack Porter

Staines Town FC regret to announce that Jack Porter has made the decision to stand down today (Wednesday 1 December 2021). Previously Assistant Manager to Mick Woodham, he took over at the beginning of October in difficult circumstances, and oversaw our uplifting run to the First Round Proper of the Buildbase FA Trophy. Unfortunately, despite a brave effort, his team went down to another defeat last night, and remains at the foot of the table. We thank Jack for his hard work, and wish him every success in his future ventures. His coaching staff comprising James Quinn, Robert Fisher, and Olly Strudwick are also moving on.

The Club intends to appoint an interim coach ahead of Saturday’s fixture, whilst we look to appoint a permanent Manager capable of lifting the club up the table in the second half of the season.
