Hawkinge Town are delighted to announce the appointment of Danny Regan as 1st Team Manager for the 2016/17 season. Danny will be joined by Damian Abel, who has been appointed in a player/ coach role.

This will be Danny's first role in management and he brings 10 years of experience playing at Kent County League level with Rolvenden, Lydd Town, New Romney and more recently Willesborough.

Danny said, 'I'm really looking forward to the challenge of taking charge of the team and making the transition from the pitch to the side-line. I'm really pleased to have the experience of Damian Abel to support me in a player/coach role.'

Damian made his senior debut aged 16 for Hythe town FC after leaving Dover Athletics Youth Academy and went on to make over 400 senior appearances for Hythe Town, Folkestone Invicta, Ramsgate (Loan) and Faversham Town, winning the Kent League and Cup double before returning to Folkestone Invicta.

More recently he had a short spell with Ashford United, winning promotion to the Kent League before having a break from football whilst starting his business.

The pair have wasted no time in getting started in their new roles, with a trial arranged for this Saturday 12pm - 2pm at the Hawkinge Trust Ground.
