Southern Counties East League Premier Division club Erith & Belvedere have confirmed that coach Jamie Leggett will take charge of team affairs after manager John Wilfort and his assistant Paul Springett resigned.

The Deres are struggling for form and are heavily involved in the relegation dog-fight in the Premier Division, having lost their previous five games and suffered a 6-0 humiliation away to Deal Town last weekend in Wilfort’s last game in charge.

Erith & Belvedere beat tenth-placed Corinthian 2-1 on Saturday and the new manager has another eleven games to save the club from the drop.

The club has not confirmed how long Leggett will be in charge for or whether they are looking for someone else to take charge for the remainder of the season.
