Manager Gareth Davies, and his support team, have stepped down at Fairford Town after three years in charge.
Davies, who guided the Cinder Lane club to the Uhlsport Hellenic League Division One West title this season, but has decided to move on, with assistant manager Ady Roper, goalkeeping coach Mike Alexander and first team coach Chris Robinson also heading for the exit.
“It’s been a fantastic three years at a club I love, but the time’s right to move on,” said Davies in the Swindon Advertiser. “I’d like to think we’re leaving the club in a great position, having won the Division One West title. It gives the club time to look for someone to take over, but for me it’s about stepping aside and recharging the batteries. I’ve had some great times at Fairford as a player and manager, and take away some brilliant memories from this season.”
Davies also guided Fairford to the final of the Gloucestershire Challenge Trophy, where they were beaten on penalties by Bristol side Cadbury Heath and also reached the semi finals of the Bluefin Sport Hellenic Supplementary Cup.
Town won Division One West by a nine-point margin.
