Westley leaves Town
Wednesday 29 January 2003
Less than a week after taking Farnborough Town to Highbury for an FA Cup tie, Graham Westley has left the club to take over as manager of their Nationwide Conference rivals Stevenage Borough.
Westley resigned as manager and chairman of Farnborough yesterday to move to Stevenage. A former Queen's Park Rangers player who is now a successful businessman, he had been in charge of the Cherrywood Road side since 1999.
Although Stevenage are one place off the bottom of the Conference, while mid-table Farnborough made a considerable profit from their FA Cup run which ended with Saturday's 5-1 defeat to Arsenal, Westley is joining a club with greater long-term potential. Unlike Farnborough's ground, Stevenage's Broadhall Way stadium is of Football League standard.
