Hepworth stands down

4 months ago By Andrew Painten

Darren Hepworth has resigned as AFC Emley manager due to a change in work circumstances.

Several weeks ago, Darren was offered the opportunity to continue next season but has now concluded that his availability to manage the team during the next 12 months will be severely limited.

AFC Emley chairman Nigel Wakefield said: “Darren Hepworth has turned this club from a mid-table also-ran to title challengers while playing great attacking football - resulting in record breaking crowds.”

Mr Wakefield continued: ”It’s testament to his mind set that he has decided to step down rather than trying to do the job with anything less than 100% commitment. He has given his all and we are immensely grateful for what he has achieved during his long stint as our manager. Thank-you Daz."

The club will make a further announcement in due course.
