As announced earlier, Craig Hignett
and Ged McNamee will leave their respective roles with immediate effect. The Club
would like to place on record its thanks for their efforts over the lasteighteen months.
Chairman Raj Singh said: “This hasbeen, undoubtedly, one of the toughest decisions of my professional life.
“My relationship with Craig is well
known and we were desperate for that to turn into success for the Club we bothcare so much about.
“In business, you have to take a step
back and decide if you have complete faith in where you are heading and if youare not then you have to be decisive.
“I owe it to myself, and to the fans
who have shown such great support, to make decisions as I see them in the best
interests of the Club. The harsh reality is that we have not made the pointsprogress we had hoped for on the back of the efforts that have been made.
“Craig and Ged have both been loyal,
hard-working and given everything to try and deliver success, and we firmly
believe they leave us with a stronger base as we seek to challenge in what is a
very open National League this season. I want to thank them for all theirefforts.”
Meanwhile, the Club can confirm that
Antony Sweeney has agreed to take charge of the First Team as CaretakerManager.
