JOHN Maggs believes Horsham FC will continue to struggle until the club finds a new home.

The Hornets and Maggs will officially part company when his contract expires at the end of the month, and the manager expressed his ‘regret’ in a statement this afternoon.

He said: “It is with much regret that my time at Horsham FC has come to an end.

“The club through chairman Kevin Borrett have fully explained the position the club finds itself in and have outlined the future for the next couple of seasons. “I accept the finances are not there to support what has been in place in the past, however the last three seasons have been really challenging for me with the cuts that have been imposed. However, I leave the club still playing Ryman Premier League football, the highest level the club has played in its history, but I feel until a new home is found it will continue to be a struggle.

“I would now like to move knowing that my time as Horsham manager has seen some of the best times in my football career.

“The club has something special about it, and there are some really nice people who work really hard at the club.

“As for the supporters, they are truly the best, to these people I say I will miss you and thanks for always getting behind my players.

“As for the players who have played for me, I have been very lucky to have had such loyalty and quality, there are too many to mention but you the supporters, and they know who I am talking about.”
