Kendal Town have had one of the most dramatic weeks in the club's history after 11 players left the St and B Accountants Stadium.

The mass exodus, which also saw the departure of first team manager David Foster, set the alarm bells ringing for the Kendal Town supporters.

Kendal did act in appointing Steve Edmondson as the club's caretaker manager, while former Kendal Town shot stopper Craig Dootson was announced as the club's assistant manager.

Edmondson has been in charge of Kendal on two different occasions while Dootson, after leaving Kendal, had previously been part of the backroom staff at Salford City.

For the club this is a shrewd move by appointing two people who have a wide range of contacts and experience, as they look to rebuild the team from scratch.

However, the biggest problem will be bringing together a brand new team in such a short space of time when the club istrying to avoid relegation.

Kendal travel to play a must-win game at 16th-placed Market Drayton Town this coming Saturday, before hosting Glossop North End the following Saturday.

Kendal will then entertain Kidsgrove Athletic on Tuesday, February 19, in a rearranged game.

The next three games are hugely important for Kendal - they need to be picking up maximum points if they are to survive.

The question will be wjether Kendal bring enough players in and also will these new players steer the club away from relegation trouble.

This is unquestionably a pivotal moment for Kendal Town, and the future direction of where they end up will begin to unravel over the coming weeks and months.
