Sports And Howell Go Their Separate Ways

Eastbourne Borough have parted company with manager Jamie Howell.

The Sports’ inconsistency has proved costly as the club acted immediately after Saturday’s defeat at Billericay Town.

It was Eastbourne’s fourth National League South loss in a row.

Defeat in Essex in Saturday followed set-backs against struggling Truro City, East Thurrock and also against Welling United.

They begun 2019 strongly but their form has taken a dip since beating Dulwich Hamlet and Chippenham at the turn of the year.

In a season which held ambitions of a push for the play-offs, the south coast club now find themselves in 15th place.

Howell had been in charge since May 2017 after joining the club a day after taking Bognor Regis Town to promotion.

Eastbourne have confirmed the departure in a short statement on their website.

They say more details will be made public in due course as they begin their search for a new manager.
