Chelmsford City’s Carl Pentney has accepted a full-time coaching role with Ipswich Town, where he will be working with the Under-23s, all the way down to the Under-9s.

Pentney made 19 appearances for the Clarets this season during his fourth spell with the club, keeping four clean sheets.

He said: “I’m leaving not for footballing reasons, but because I cannot commit to the schedule of part-time football.

“I would like to thank the club for everything and wish them the best of luck.”

Manager Rod Stringer said: “Pents is retiring and going full-time with Ipswich Town, which was confirmed this week. It’s a shame because we wanted him to go away on a high, but unfortunately he’s possibly left us now on a low.

“We wish him well and good luck to him moving on. Pents is a top, top guy and I’ve got no qualms with him at all.”
