Margate Football Club have announced that Ben Greenhalgh will be player/manager for the 2024/25 campaign.

Greenhalgh will take the Thanet side into a new era following relegation last season that saw Mark Stimson lose his job at Hartsdown Park.

Greenhalgh has been a Blue since the 2021/22 season, where as a player, he lit the blue touch paper, scoring 24 goals and assisting 28 times, becoming an instant fan favourite around Hartsdown Park.

Since then, he has continued to play and give his all for Margate FC, reaching 100 appearances at the club during the 2022/23 season and surpassing the 50-goal mark, towards the end of last season.

Greenhalgh also has experience as part of the coaching team, as he was player/assistant manager, where he helped aid the club on an incredible Kent Senior Cup run which ended with the ‘Gate lifting the trophy at Priestfield Stadium.

After a long and thorough process, with plenty of applicants for a new manager, Ben stood out to the club, having already dedicated three years to Margate and his ambitions align with the club to bounce straight back up to the Isthmian Premier Division.

Upon his appointment as manager, Ben said: “It’s a privilege to, not only be part of this club as a player, but to join some great managers in the history books of Margate FC, is not something I take for granted.”

“I thank the club for this opportunity and look forward to steering us back to winning ways!”
