VCD Athletic appoint former Sittingbourne and Ramsgate boss as their new manager- and launch an Academy

VCD Athletic yesterday announced the appointment of former Sittingbourne and Ramsgate boss- and former Vickers player- Nick Davis as their new manager. He replaces Keith McMahon, who left his post on June 26th.

The club statement reads:

'After much deliberation VCD Athletic FC are pleased to announce the appointment of Nick Davis as 1st Team Manager.

Nick is a former Vickers player who spent a number of successful seasons with us before moving up to Isthmian League and Conference level, before gaining management experience at Sittingbourne and Ramsgate. He is well acquainted with and well respected at VCD and we are sure his appointment will add to our determination in building a stronger and more united club, working together to bring greater success than we have enjoyed in recent years.

We are also pleased to announce another recent addition at the club, this being an Academy which is a first at VCD Athletic.

We have been lacking in the development of young players recently and we hope his experience will facilitate the development of our Youth Section into a natural progression into senior football.
The club will give Nick every assistance possible in his new venture, and we are confident that he will be a great addition to the club going forward.

We received a number of applications for the vacant post and would like to thank all those people that took the time to send in their CV’s with a view to joining us and now, having made our decision, wish them every success in the future.'

Nick spent three years in charge of the Brickies before leaving in Jabuary 2018, and then spent some time coaching at Phoenix Sports before returning to management at Ramsgate. He was in charge of the Rams from December 2018 to September 2019, and most recently has been Assistant Manager at Faversham Town.
