Bromsgrove Sporting manager Bren Kelly has spoken about the departure of assistant Andy Mason.
Mason was announced this week as stepping down from his role with the Southern League Premier Central club.
Kelly told the club’s website: “I am devastated that Andy has come to this decision, but I completely understand why and respect his choice.
“First and foremost, I would like to thank Andy for all his efforts and contributions throughout his time at Sporting. He has played an integral part in the club’s rise in recent years.
“Andy has had longevity in the football industry, which is a difficult thing to achieve these days. From when he played here and in the USA, to then moving into coaching, he has had many successful adventures, all of which I’m sure hold great memories for him and his family.”
