Hythe Town FC Confirm New Manager
Hythe Town Football Club are delighted to announce Tim Dixon as new 1st Team Manager. Tim’s appointment follows hot on the heels of the announcement of Trevor Kennett as new Chairman, as a new era begins at Reachfields Stadium.
Tim, 48, was chosen from a high quality shortlist, established after the club received over twenty applications for the vacant managerial position at Reachfields. He brings a wealth of experience to the role, his previous position being 1st Team Manager at local Ryman South rivals, Ramsgate.
Tim was appointed as manager of the Rams in April 2012, as successor to Jim Ward, stepping up from his role as assistant, along with coach, Darren Beale, who will also become part of the new managerial set-up at Reachfields.
During his first full season in the Ryman South he finished just one point off the play-offs in 7th position in the table, before leaving the club in an almost identical position in February this year.
In his not too distant past as a member of Dover Athletic’s back-room staff, it was our new man who gave the thumbs up to ex-Gillingham manager and then Dover manager, Andy Hessenthaler, to go ahead and sign a certain Shaun Welford. Tim also had a spell in charge of the reserves during his time at the Crabble.
Our regular supporters may recall that the Rams got the better of us both home and away last season, but we promise not to hold that against our new manager! Finally, we would like to take this opportunity to both congratulate and welcome Tim and Darren to the club, as we look towards an exciting new future at Hythe Town FC.
