Is= thmian League Bulletin says that Kidd left through mutual consent!        
I= t was rumoured in the papers that many players would leave after the shock announcement, but it was only a<= /td>  
s= hock because Epsom so rarely sacked their managers. He was the third after Bill Kennedy and Alan Webb.  
S= utton make an approach for Neil Robson, while Brian Perkins and Paul Andrews never p= lay for the club again.  
17= /4/90 League Bulletin advises that Kidd and Perkins have gone to Molesey. Neil      
Ro= bson, Bob Horne, Rick Collier and Mark Norman all leave the club says the bulletin news.    
R= icky Kidd is understandably disappointed and pointed to the signing of the youngsters = on contracts, although  
i= t must be said that these contracts would be null and void if Kidd left, so he was covering himself a bit.  
H= e said "In the end unfortunately, a lot of clubs are run by people who do n= ot really realise these sort of things."  
He= credits Dave Wilson and Stella and accepted that the Director actually told him to his face.

13= /3/90 first game back as manager for Adrian Hill. A 1-1 draw at Egham.

H= e says "that is full marks to Ricky Kidd and the rest of the staff who have attracted the young talent."  
H= e persuades eight players to remain for now. Andrews has gone to Whyteleafe and Perki= ns to Molesey.

P= resume this was connected to the departure of Ricky Kidd, but could have been cancell= ed by the club. All  
th= ree players remained with the club into the 90/91 season.          
Th= ey were probably void.                
17= /3/90 Newbury hammer a weak Epsom 3-0 despite Tim Tweedy hitting the post early= in the game.    
2= 0/3/90 Tim Tweedy put Epsom ahead from 30 yards against Chertsey after 16 minutes and led at HT, but they

3= 1/3/90 Two goals in the first seven minutes (including the first after 13 seconds) m= ade Epsom's job difficult,  
a= lthough they had Captain Paul Mumford sent off on the hour before reducing the arrears after 68 through  
Ca= rlton Walcott. Two minutes later it was 3-1. A Hungerford player was sent off n= ear the end too.
