Bad news for Bostik League North club Witham Town is that they have lost manager Adam Flint to Bishop`s Stortford, who have been placed in the Bostik League Premier next season.
Flint, who will be assisted by James Robinson, leave Witham where they have been in charge since the tail end of the 2015/16 season.
A former Tiptree United player, Flint had his playing career cut short due to injury but his cross-over into management has seen him in roles previously at Witham as assistant to Danny Greaves, where he helped re-shape the squad which built a platform for further successes, then onto local Sunday team Priory Sports where he guided them to Essex Premier Cup winners and to the last sixteen of the FA Sunday Cup.
One of the youngest manager’s in senior non-League football, he successfully guided Witham to safety in 2016/17 and was rewarded with the job permanently in the summer of 2017 and led them to an eleventh-place finish.
Bishop’s Stortford director of football Steve Smith has known the duo for a number of seasons and told the club`s official website: “They have made a reputation for their style of play and the way they encourage young players to progress from the youth and reserve/development set up into the first-team.
“Everyone at the ProKit UK stadium welcomes Adam and James to the club and I encourage all loyal Blues supporters to get behind them and the team for the coming season”.
