No Budget For New Christchurch Boss
Graham Kemp

....warning to prospective managerial applicants: Don’t expect a budget – because there isn’t one.

Priory chiefs are hoping to hear from potential successors to Graham Kemp following the resignation of the long-serving boss on Tuesday night.

Duffy says the high-flyers are keen to make a quick appointment after Kemp’s decision to end his stint at Hurn Bridge.

Kemp, who took charge of Christchurch in April 2007, has firmly established himself as the most successful manager in the club’s history. During that time, much has been made of Priory’s meagre resources – with some questioning the club’s insistence that they are non-payers.

But Duffy dismissed suggestions of any hidden cash and told possible applicants that they would have to work within those financial constraints.

He told the Bournemouth Echo: “I think that once people have read the article in the Echo – and word gets round in this game – I am sure we will have a lot of people showing an interest. It has got to be somebody who understands that the club does not pay players, the manager or anybody.

“If they are happy with that and we feel they are the right person, then the committee will hopefully get somebody on board.

“We want somebody here for the long haul and somebody that is prepared to work across the under-18s, reserves, help develop the youth section and also make sure we are still competitive in the Sydenhams League.

“Experience is preferable but a lot of the better managers are committed to their own teams and most are used to working with money. There is no point in people applying if they think there is hidden money somewhere – because there isn’t.”

Duffy said the club had no candidates in mind, while he also revealed they had yet to contact – or be contacted by – possible interested parties.

He added: “Graham wants to take a break and that is all it is. We didn’t want him to go and he knows that. He has been fantastic for everyone at Hurn Bridge.”

Having led Christchurch to their highest finishing position of third and a League Cup triumph last term, 47-year-old Kemp de-cided he needed to take time out.

Kemp, who will remain at the club with assistant John Macey and coach Jim Totczyk until a successor is appointed, broke the news to his players following Priory’s 3-1 defeat against 10-man Downton at Wick Lane.
