Bostik League Premier club Kingstonian have appointed Leigh Dynan as their new first-team manager.
Dynan, and his assistant Koo Dumbuya, join the K’s from Whyteleafe, where he had a successful spell at Church Road, leading ‘Leafe into the play-off zone with just one defeat so far this season.
Dynan began his footballing career with West Ham United. However, injury forced his retirement in the professional ranks, and he began a lengthy non-League career with Fisher Athletic before playing for Carshalton Athletic, Cobham, Walton Casuals for two spells and Leyton before becoming Cobham manager in 2010.
He then became Farnborough reserve team manager in 2011 and was promoted to assistant-manager in 2012.
In 2016 after his successful time at Cherrywood Road, he moved to Whyteleafe.
His assistant, Koo Dumbuya, is a talented UEFA A Licence coach who moved to Whyteleafe after being a successful academy manager with Hampton & Richmond Borough.
In his playing career, Dumbaya signed for Brentford as a schoolboy in 1986 and then joined Aldershot in 1988 where he signed a pro contract.
He then went on to play for Wokingham Town, Staines Town, Aldershot Town, Burnham, Fleet Town and finally Cove before retiring from playing in 2015.
Dynan has signed an eighteen-month contract and will be taking training on Monday night before K`s hugely important Friday night fixture in the Buildbase FA Trophy First Qualifying Round at home to Thurrock at Fetcham Grove.
