Calvin Buckland has resigned from his position as managing director of Worthing Football Club.

Buckland began the role in April, 2015, shortly after George Dowell took over as owner and chairman at Woodside Road and quickly became a familiar face to the club’s supporters.

Worthing were promoted from the Ryman League South Division through the play-offs in the 2015/16 season, before finishing 14th then 16th in the following two Premier Division campaigns. In a club statement, Worthing owner George Dowell said:

“We can confirm that Calvin has decided to step away from his role at Worthing Football Club and Worthing Football Centre, as of 4pm today.

“Having initially resigned from the club last week, I had hoped that we could come to a workable arrangement that would suit everybody. Unfortunately, we haven’t been able to do this.

“Since I took over the club in March 2015, Calvin has been by my side, and his commitment and hard work have been integral to the rebuild of Worthing Football Club ever since. Without him, the club wouldn’t be where it is today and for that I will always be immensely grateful.”
