Club pay tribute to Sean Tynan and Gary Kioussis, who have announced they are stepping down.

Sadly, popular duo Sean Tynan and Gary Kioussis have informed the Club that they are standing down at the end of the season from their current positions with Matt Carmichael taking over the manager’s position.
Sean and Gary have without doubt been a revelation in their achievements here at Harwich and Parkeston Football Club, having taken over 3 years ago with the Club in a very lowly position.
In their first season they pulled the club from bottom 4 to a respectable mid-table position, and the following season they reached the play-off final. The current campaign has seen us in play-off contention virtually all season.
They cannot be praised highly enough for the work they have put in; both have very highly responsible work positions and yet have fully committed to us.
They have earnt all at the club's respect for all they have accomplished in putting a structure in place at all senior playing levels. Both have assured us that they will still be involved with us in some advisory capacity as their footballing knowledge, player and business contacts and professionalism are too valuable for us.
On behalf of everyone at the Club we cannot thank them enough for their work and commitment, both will issue their own statement towards the end of the week.
Sean and Gary were very instrumental in getting Matt Carmichael involved with them earlier in the season and it was their recommendation to offer the manager's position to Matt.
Matt is certainly no stranger to us having been manager a few years back when our circumstances were very difficult and he accomplished playing success whilst we were in the Essex & Suffolk Border League and the Club was struggling to stay in business.
Matt went on to have success at senior level at both Brantham and Little Oakley and is very highly qualified at FA coaching levels, so we are very fortunate to have such a competent person to take over the role.
We all wish Matt all the best for next season.
