A new Head Coach for Bay

Experienced Beale joins Ben Smith's side

Herne Bay have announced the capture of Darren Beale, who heads to Winch's Field to take up the role of Head Coach.

Darren has a great deal of higher level experience, most recently alongside former Leatherhead boss Sammy Moore at Hemel Hempstead Town, Concord Rangers and- of course- with the Tanners.

Manager Ben Smith stated:

"I'm really pleased to welcome Darren to the club, he brings a wealth of experience with him and has developed a fantastic reputation with players at National League Level. I've said for a while now that we need to make improvements both on and off the pitch if we are serious in our ambitions, and for the chairman to bring a Coach in from National League South level is a big step for us."
