Woking have confirmed that manager Garry Hill and assistant Steve Thompson have not been offered new contracts, amid talks with a new investor.
Hill, the second longest serving manager in the Vanarama National League, guided The Cards to safety this season but after six and a half years at the club his contract won’t be extended.
Despite having taken the club from mid-table in the National League South to four consecutive top-half finishes at the highest level of Non-League football, at a board meeting today the club’s directors told Hill they would be parting ways.
A statement on the club’s website said: “The Board of Woking Football Club is in negotiation with a new investor. We are confident that this investment will secure the long term future of the Club and are about to enter the final stages of these negotiations. As a result, the Board are not in a position to offer a new contract to the present management team.
“The supporters, staff, volunteers and Board of Woking FC will never be able to repay the debt we all owe to Garry Hill and Steve Thompson for everything they have achieved since first joining us over six years ago and we thank them profusely for all they have done for us.
“Further announcements will be made in due course.”
