Unfortunately the club are sad to announce that they have accepted the resignation of first team manager Chris Davies and he has departed the club with immediate effect.
The club has made the swift decision to promote Jonathan Evans and Phil Richards who will act as joint managers. Both were assistants under Chris and have been heavily involved for a number of years. We feel they will be in the best position to carry on the good work starting immediately on Saturday and we wish them all the best.
Chris had this to say:
“Unfortunately my circumstances have recently changed and I will be jumping on a plane next week and be on the other side of the world travelling for the foreseeable future, meaning I am unable to carry on my duties with the club. The timing is very unfortunate, being in the middle of the season and the fact I believe the team is in a good position to have a successful second part of the season. I was fully committed to trying to add to the trophies we’ve won in previous seasons but I cannot turn down this opportunity.
However, I’m confident the players will carry on the good work we’ve done over the past 2 months to atone for our poor start and I would back them to be challenging on more than one front come May.
Furthermore, I think the club has made the wise decision to go for continuity, with both the assistants stepping up in a joint capacity and I wish them all the best with the job in hand.
Finally I would like to thank the players, past and present, my coaching staff and the club for the previous 4 and a half years and I wish everyone at the club the best for the future”
On a side note, as his last act as manager Chris collected the Manager of the Month award for November.
The club would like to thank Chris for all his hard work since taking over and it’s a pity that it has had to come to a sudden end. We understand the reasoning and will always be grateful to him for his efforts since taking over. We wish him the best in the future.
