JOHN Coventry admits he is ‘not bothered about results’ as his lengthy reign as East Thurrock United boss draws to a close.

Coventry will depart at the end of the campaign after 13 seasons in charge.

Although Rocks are set to welcome an out-of-form Bishop’s Stortford to the Grayers Graphics Stadium tomorrow, Coventry will not lose any sleep over the outcome of the Isthmian Premier League clash.

“I know Bishop’s Stortford have lost each of their last seven games, but I don’t think it matters who we play at the moment,” said Coventry, whose side are 11th in the standings.

“We are in the position we find ourselves in and I know my squad will give absolutely everything but whatever happens, happens.

“I’m not bothered about results now.

“We have 12 games left and I’m looking forward to the end of the season.

“The group of players that have stayed with me have been brilliant.

“I only have 13 players and they deserve every bit of praise they get.

“In all honesty, I can’t speak highly enough of them because it’s been a difficult period for the whole club and they have just got on with the job at hand.”

Rocks held a crisis meeting on Wednesday, with the club looking to fill numerous key roles in order to keep the club afloat.

A large number of people came forward to offer their services in admin roles and for matchday duties.

And Coventry was pleased to see the local community rally around.

“It’s pleasing to see there is a potential future for the football club,” added Coventry.

“That’s all I ever wanted. If the club can move forward in any way, that would be fantastic.”

It has also been revealed East Thurrock’s Grayers Graphics Stadium is in the process of being sold.

However, the club is expecting to still have use of the arena into the 2021/22 season at the very least before moving to a new stadium in the catchment area.
