Former Hailsham Town boss Kenny McCreadie has been appointed the new manager of Bexhill United Football Club.

The passionate Scot will fill a role vacated by the resignation of previous boss Darrol Parris two games before the end of the 2012/13 season after 15 months in sole charge.

A statement on Bexhill’s website last night (Friday) read: “Following a short listing process of the applicants carried out by the committee, interviews were held with the shortlisted applicants with the committee being very impressed Kenny’s experience and aspirations for the Pirates.

“Kenny met with our new chairman Bill Harrison last night in order for Bill to meet the candidate the committee had selected and for Kenny to discuss Bill’s aspirations for the Pirates moving forward.

“The meeting went well and Bill was happy to endorse the committee’s selection and Kenny was delighted to accept the post as 1st team manager. Everyone at the club is looking forward to the 2013/2014 season under Bill’s chairmanship and under the direction of Kenny on the field.”

McCreadie led Hailsham to promotion from Sussex County Football League Division Two in the 2011/12 campaign and a mid-table finish in Division One last time out. Bexhill came 12th in Division Two last term after losing their way in the new year having been unbeaten until December.
