Havant and Waterlooville Boss walks following clubs Relegation

Havant & Waterlooville manager Lee Bradbury has left the club by mutual consent, following seven years in charge.

Bradbury had guided Havant to the National League for the first time in the club’s history just last season, however, their stay in the league has been short lived.

The Hawks currently lie in 22nd place with 40 points in the National League with only one game remaining.

Bradbury’s departure was confirmed following Havant’s 2-0 defeat at relegated Aldershot on Easter Monday.

A club statement confirmed the news saying: “The club would like to thank Lee for his hard work.

“Lee has been here for seven years, he is held in the highest esteem by both the board and the majority of fans and he and his family is more than welcome to Westleigh Park.”

Bradbury took over in October of the 2012-13 season with the club in the National League South and guided them to a 10th place finish.

Despite making the playoffs a couple of seasons later, The Hawks were relegated to the Isthmian League in the 2015-16 season.

Following the relegation, Bradbury led the club to back-to-back promotions in an incredible spell of success for the Hampshire-based club.

The seven year stint for Havant has been nothing short of eventful, but they will ultimately end up where they started when Bradbury’s reign began and that is in the National League South.
