Richard Pears has resigned as manager of Barnstaple Town, the Evo-Stik League South West strugglers have announced.
Currently sitting second-bottom of the table, the club posted the following statement on their offical site:
It is with sadness that Richard Pears has offered his resignation as the Manager of Barnstaple Town Football Club and I have accepted it. Richard so wanted the team to do well under his leadership but feels that it is not happening. He is stepping down to make way for some-one else to bring the side together to make all of the supporters proud on their team again. He wishes all of us success in the future.
I would like to thank Richard for the tremendous hard work he did on behalf of the Club. He made great efforts trying to bring a virtually new side together and win games for us. I will be earnestly looking for new manager and hope the players will stay loyal to the Club in the meantime. I will keep you all informed of any developments.
