Manager Robbie Simpson has paid tribute to the efforts of Chelmsford City’s outgoing head of football operations Steve Pitt.
Pitt, who returned to the National League South club last April after a brief period away, was announced earlier this week as leaving the Clarets.
Speaking to the club website, Simpson said:
“I seriously don’t think I could’ve transitioned from player to manager without him, as his contacts at this level, in and around Essex, and in non-league, are second to none.
“We wish Pittsy nothing but the best and he’ll be an asset for any club which he joins.”
