Stewart Kearn has stepped down as manager of Sydenhams Football League (Wessex) Premier Division club Hamworthy United.

Kearn resigned last week but agreed to take the reins for Saturday’s trip to Verwood Town and informed the players following Hammers’ 1-0 win at Potterne Park.

He replaced Graham Kemp in September and took charge of nineteen games in all competitions during his fourteen-week stay in the County Ground hot-seat.

Kearn, who had previously been Kemp’s assistant for eleven months, presided over five wins and three draws in sixteen league matches and leaves with Hammers thirteenth in the table – the highest-placed club in Dorset.

His assistant John Macey left the club following last week’s 2-0 defeat by Follands and Kearn said his departure had been one of his reasons for going.

Kearn also said he wanted to concentrate his efforts on coaching having joined a specialist goalkeeper coaching school in June.

Kearn, who was once on the books at Sheffield Wednesday, played locally for Bashley, Dorchester Town, Wimborne Town and Christchurch and was joint-manager at Bashley at the start of last season before linking up with Kemp at Hamworthy in November 2013.
