Lindsey leaves Chats for new job

Chatham Town have announced that manager Scott Lindsey has left his position to take up an opportunity in the Football League.

Lindsey has brought success to the Southern Counties East Premier Division side in recent seasons, both curtailed due to Covid.

With just a few weeks to go until the start of the new campaign, Chatham Town chairman Kevin Hake announced the news, saying that “with a heavy heart I can confirm the departure of Scott Lindsey as first team manager of Chatham Town with immediate effect.”

“Scott has been brilliant at the club since he joined and leaves us in a lot stronger position than when he came.”

“I think it says a lot about the club and him as a person that he was offered other non league jobs but turned them down, but the chance to work back in the Football League was one had had to take.”

“I would personally like to wish Scott all the best in the future and he will always receive a good welcome back at the Chats.”

Lindsey took on the role of manager at Chatham Town in October 2019.

Kevin Hake, who is a former manager of Sheppey United, will take charge in the interim alongside director of football Carl Laraman until a long term replacement for Lindsey is found.

Meanwhile, Lindsey is yet to announce what opportunity he has been given in the Football League.
