Ebbsfleet United manager Daryl McMahon has left the club by mutual consent following the club’s recent restructing news.

The 36-year-old took over the reigns from Jamie Day in April 2015 and has since led the club to the play-offs in each of the last three seasons and won promotion from the National League South through the play-off final in 2017. In the side’s first season back in the National League, the club reached the play-Off semi-final losing to eventual winners Tranmere Rovers.

Club chairman and owner Dr Abdulla Al Humaidi said: “Daryl has worked tremendously hard in getting this club into the National League and consolidating us there.

“Naturally, this is a disappointing day for myself and the board in parting ways with someone who has been part of the very fabric of our club for the past three years.

“However, we believe it is the right decision for the club at this point in our development on and off the field.

“We wish Daryl all the very best in his future career and reiterate our thanks for all he has accomplished in getting the club to its current position.”

The club will now start the search for a replacement but will not be commenting further until an appointment is made.
