Pitchero Non-League understands that Woking will announce former Southampton academy coach Anthony Limbrick as their new manager this evening.
The Australian-born Limbrick coached at the Premier League Saints for six years, spending one season as their U18s manager before leaving citing personal reasons.
After Southampton, Limbrick became England U17s assistant coach. Most recently, he’s been coaching at West Ham United’s esteemed academy.
It is also understood that Woking legend Geoff Chapple, who won the FA Trophy three times as manager of the Cards, will remain as Director of Football.
Limbrick is tasked with replacing long-standing boss Garry Hill and assistant Steve Thompson, who were told that their contracts wouldn’t be renewed, on Thursday.
After six and a half years at the club, the Woking board informed the popular duo that they were “not in a position to offer a new contract to the present management team” due to negotiations with a potential investor nearing its final stages.
On Friday, the club announced an investment partnership with Blackbridge Sports run by 25-year-old Alexander Jarvis, who offer “world-class financial solutions across the Eurasian continent”.
