Buxton have announced that the club’s joint-manager Steve Halford is to depart.
Halford has been working in partnership with Paul Phillips, who will now assume sole charge at the Silverlands. The Bucks appointed the pair after the departure of long-serving Martin McIntosh last February.
Buxton are currently in 9th place in the Evo-Stik Premier Division, but can jump up a couple of places if they win their game in hand. The Derbyshire club have released this statement on Halford’s departure:
After a meeting of the board on Monday evening, Buxton Football Club have decided to take a change of direction with their management structure and continue the season with a single first team manager. To this end Paul Philips will be taking absolute control and Steve Halford, by mutual consent, is stepping down. Steve leaves the club with everyone’s thanks and best wishes for his future football career.
