Hinckley AFC manager Dale Belford has stepped down from his role with the club.
The club’s announcement cited personal reasons behind Belford’s decision and he leaves the Midland League First Division side after enjoying an impressive eight wins from 12 games since his appointment in October.
He told the official club website: “I’m disappointed that my tenure has had to come to an end so soon, but I’ve enjoyed my short spell at the club and I’d like to thank the fans for their fantastic support in every way during my time here.”
Chairman Steve Jelfs said: “We are, of course, disappointed that Dale’s reign as manager has ended but we respect his decision to step down. We were delighted to appoint someone of Dale’s calibre to take over from Carl Abbott’s fine work and it’s a shame his tenure has ended so soon.
“We’re pleased that Richard and Tom have agreed to take interim charge and we’re likely to take our time appointing a successor to make sure it’s the right appointment for the club.”
