I am not privy to the information apropos the precise reasons for their departure however one suspects that the club is indebted to Mr Paine and his team for securing promotion to the Premier Division in his first season (2016-17) after its ignominious fall from grace the previous year. During his tenure the club formed an U18s and U23 team with the latter securing a place in a final the season just ended and with the Academy developing and flourishing, the infrastructure has been greatly improved.
I never had the pleasure of extending the hand of friendship towards Bob Paine and his management team but as a supporter of many moons I am grateful that their sterling efforts have ensured that the club is still ploughing its furrow in the top division after that dastardly relegation at the end of season 2015-16. Thankfully the spell in Division One turned out to be ephemeral and I recall experiencing a frisson of excitement the following season when Mr Paine’s team secured promotion back to the pinnacle of the league.
I sincerely wish Bob Paine and his management team every success in the future.
