Sammy Moore is to leave his role as Hemel Hempstead Town manager.
The former Concord Rangers boss took over at the Tudors last May, and his team were 11th in the National League South prior to the season shutdown in March, six points off the play-off places.
Moore explained his departure via Twitter: “It is with sadness that I announce that my contract at Hemel Hempstead Town FC will not be renewed for the forthcoming season. Although I respect the chairman’s decision, it has come as a massive shock to me, as I was given the go-ahead to plan for next season.
“I am disappointed that this is the decision that’s been made, after a season which I felt wasn’t finished, with six points off play-offs and a game in hand, with also two cup finals left to play. I just feel like it was unfinished business and we could have gone again this season.”
The 32-year-old ex-AFC Wimbledon midfielder was keen to praise the club’s supporters, players, staff and volunteers.
