Following the weekend game at Grimsby Borough, Worsborough Bridge Athletic first team manager Mark Joyce and coach Phil Jacobs have made the decision to leave the club with immediate effect.

With 11 games and 33 points still to play for and the imminent appointment of a new football club board, both Mark and Phil felt that the timing was right to give the club the best chance of escaping relegation from the Northern Counties League.

Acting Chairman Mark Booth said, ” Mark and Phil have served the club loyally at U19’s and first team level and their commitment during a difficult period should not be underestimated. Throughout this season they have both acted with dignity whilst maintaining a determination and enthusiasm that many others would not have been able to maintain.

I know that the decision was difficult for both of them, but it shows the class that both have to leave at a time when there is still points to play for and with games in hand on the teams around us. Mark and Phil will always be welcome at Park Road and I know everyone at the club will wish them success in their next roles.”
