Former AFC Hornchurch attacker Bradley Warner admitted it’s sad to see long-serving boss Jimmy McFarlane depart the club.
Warner left the club to re-join Bowers & Pitsea the week before McFarlane designed to resign from his role as manager.
But he feels it was the right direction to make after everything he has gone through in the last year.
“It’s definitely sad to see because he was there for so long, not only as a manager but as a player, and he obviously loves the club and everyone around the club loves him as well.
“It’s sad to see, but he’s done it for his own personal reasons as well, he has come through a tough time and it’s a lot to then take on what he has done.
“Fair play to him, it’s sad to see, but I think the reason he has done it is for the right reason.”
Warner is also confident Hornchurch will turn their recent bad run of form around under new man Mark Stimson.
“The boys there are brilliant, great squad, been unlucky with injuries so they’ve had to change things around.
“Now Mark Stimson has gone in there, I’m sure he’ll sure things up, just like Jim would have if he stayed there and carried on.”
