On Friday 19 August, we received a text from Michael Walther, the senior team manager, saying “Have decided I am going to move on after the FA Cup game”. Although surprised at this decision, we would like to take this opportunity of thanking Mike for his contribution over the past years and wish him well at Stansted FC.

Andre Thomas, the club’s assistant manager, will be stepping up as interim manager and will continue to push the Tons ahead in their endevours to finish further up the table this season, in spite of the two recent losses.
