Sydenhams Football League (Wessex) Premier club Hamworthy United and Brendon King have mutually agreed to part ways and a new manager has quickly been lined-up.
After a discussion between chairman Steve Harvey and Brendon King, the two parties have agreed to part ahead of the 2018/19 pre-season.
King guided the Hammers away from the drop in his first half-season in charge, before moving Hamworthy up into the higher echelons of the table and into an all-time high of fifth place in the Wessex Premier.
Winning forty-four matches from eighty-one games, King did a fine job after replacing Carl Poore in November 2016.
Poole Town’s assistant-manager Callum Brooks has been offered and has accepted the chance to manage Hamworthy.
Currently working as a full-time coach at LeAF Academy, Brooks re-established New Milton in the Wessex League as their manager before joining Poole.
He holds his UEFA B coaching licence along with the youth award in football coaching.
With spells at Crystal Palace as a youngster and AFC Bournemouth as a coach within their academy, he joined Poole initially to coach the first-team, manage the development squad and link with the youth section to provide some progression for talented players.
He stepped up to be Tom Killick’s assistant during the 2015/16 season.
Brooks has long held an ambition to be a manager in his own right again, if an attractive opportunity arose.
He leaves Poole on the best of terms and is very much involved with other projects within the club away from the first-team and his involvement with those projects will continue.
