The last man to lead Hastings United to promotion is set to return to the football club.
Nigel Kane, who managed United to promotion via the Ryman Football League Division One South play-offs in 2007, is expected to become part of Terry White’s managerial set-up.
White patrolled the technical area alongside under-21s boss Ben White during last night’s (Monday’s) 1-0 defeat at home to Burgess Hill Town in the Parafix Sussex Senior Challenge Cup.
He said afterwards: “I’ve spoken to Nigel Kane, who all things being equal, is going to come in and help Ben and I. I’ve worked with him before and I’ve managed him. He does a good job. He’s very analytical, and he’s different to Ben and I.”
Known for his attention to detail and vast knowledge of opposing teams, Kane was a United player before initially becoming joint manager alongside Pat Brown in December 2005. The Geordie assumed sole charge a few months later and left the club by mutual consent in December 2007.
