Ebbsfleet United are pleased to welcome Kevin Watson to the management team as he joins the club in the capacity of first-team coach.
Kevin, who started in his new role at the Kuflink Stadium yesterday, replaces the outgoing Ian Hendon as Garry Hill’s right-hand man. On behalf of the manager, club and players, we would like to thank Ian for all his hard work on and off the pitch since his arrival at the club alongside Garry last November.
The 45-year-old Watson played for Tottenham in the early Nineties before carving out a long League career with the likes of Swindon Town, Rotherham United, Reading and Colchester United (pictured below v Gareth Bale), winning four promotions including two into the Championship.
His coaching career began at Luton Town in 2009, and then alongside Teddy Sheringham as assistant manager at Stevenage. He has also been assistant manager at Eastleigh, spent 14 months as Bishop’s Stortford manager and worked as assistant boss at Hungerford Town.
Kevin will take his place in the dugout for the first time in Saturday’s televised clash at Harrogate Town. We welcome him to the club and wish him all the very best in his new role.
