Bishop's Stortford Football Club owner and director of football Steve Smith says supporters can expect off-field announcements soon




Bishop's Stortford supporters can expect some announcements in the next few weeks regarding the club's plans for the future.

Owner and director of football Steve Smith is back in sole charge following the departure last week of player-manager Jamie Cureton, who the Blues could not give assurances to about his role for next season.

And Smith has asked for fans to be patient before details of the direction the club plans to go in are revealed.

"We know it's a difficult time and people are saying we should do this and do that," said Smith, whose side are on a nine-game winless run and sit 16th in the BetVictor Isthmian League, Premier Division.

"Announcements will be made in the next few weeks about where we're going with it. Once people know what we're doing I think they'll feel a lot happier."

Smith saw his side run leaders Worthing close last Tuesday (February 4) in a 1-0 home defeat before going down 3-1 at Leatherhead on Saturday.

He has already recruited Craig Calver, Jordy Mongoy and Jack Folan, as well as bringing Johnville Renee back, since returning to the hotseat and could potentially make further signings ahead of this Saturday's trip to Bognor Regis Town.

"We played really, really well against Worthing and should have won the game," said Smith, whose side also host Enfield Town this Tuesday.

"We were in the game against Leatherhead and did okay, but we were disappointed with giving away a couple of soft goals."
