Ex-Addick in shock departure!
After being installed by the bookies to be the first manager to leave his post this season and following a big turnaround of playing staff and then the board blaming themselves for his appointment, it came as no surpise to Addicks today to see Kim Grant being relieved of his duties
as manager of Woking
Granty (as I used to call him), was hailed as the new messiah when he was appointed in the summer at Kingfield. Back then chairman David Taylor said: "We have made the fundamental decision to have a completely new approach to football. If we are going to revitalise the club we had to do something very, very different. Kim and Phil were selected because of their track record and their in-depth knowledge of the game."
Well after 7 games Woking appear to be on their next "new approach"
after Granty was relieved of his duties with Woking 2nd from bottom of Blue Square Premier with just 2 points. Chairman Taylor also offered to resign but his board disagreed as they can't wait to hear about his next "completely new approach."
But Kim shouldn't worry because with his pedigree of being a lifelong Hammers fan (he was born in Sekondi-Takoradi, just north of the Bow Road), an ex-Addick and with a craving for custard creams, he appears a cert for the now vacant job down at the Boleyn
