Havant and Waterlooville can confirm the departure of Manager Jamie Collins from the club.

Chairman, Derek Pope, has said: “After a difficult start to the season, where results are evident, it has been decided to part ways with Jamie. He (Jamie) has been an integral part of this club for many years, playing in the successful FA Cup run in 2008 and then returning to club a few years ago, first as a player, then Coach and eventually Manager.

Despite the difficult situation the club have found themselves in, I have to agree with many supporters that Jamie will remain a much loved member of our club for many years.”

Shaun Gale will be in charge for tomorrow’s fixture against Truro City.
