Ebbsfleet United F.C. Announces Press Conference - Major News By James Parker
Today at the Stonebridge Road, Northfleet, a young man was announced as the new manager of Ebbsfleet United F.C after Jamie Days shock resignation last week. The twenty year old New Zealander Davey Jones was introduced by chairman Abdulla Al-Humaidi to the media and fans.
Mr Jones had a few words to say at his appointment. “ I am honored to have been chosen by Dr Al-Humaidi to manage Ebbsfleet. I know I have very little experience in football management apart from a few games on FM. But in all seriousness, I am determined to see the Rise of the “Fleet” through the divisions to the very top.”
Bold words for a bold manager.
Many and I have been confused at the surprise appointment of Davey Jones given his lack of experience and age. Turns out he only holds a National A Licence and only played Sunday League football back in Christchurch, New Zealand. Surely there could have someone better out there to take up the reins of the club.
But we shall wait and see if his appointment was justified. Could this be dark times for the club? We shall see....
