Danny Johnson is to step down as manager of Radcliffe Borough at the end of the season.

The news was announced in a statement on the club website on Sunday.

It read:

“It has been a very tough decision but one that has been made easier in recent events. I have decided to stand down from my position as manager of Radcliffe Borough Football Club at the end of the current campaign. Managing a football club is an unenviable task and this season has been my toughest by some distance.

On and off the pitch we just haven’t been able to achieve the standards that we tried to set at the end of last season and the start of this. Having said that, there are some excellent up and coming players who now need to learn from this season and rather than trying to look like semi professional footballers they now need to go and become one.

I want to thank everyone who has given everything to the cause this year,my management team of Dave Powell, Dave Hawarth, Luke (Sports Scientist), Sam (Physio) and Pete (Kit Manager) – what an amazing group of people, it has been a pleasure working with you all.

Thank you also to ‘The Friends of the Boro’ supporters club and to Ric Fielding, Roy Swinbank, Stewart Fell, OB, Pete Sandiford, Paul Crawley, Pete Gray and of course the main man himself Bernard Manning. Thank you all for your efforts and good luck to you all for the future.

The Chairman made a decision earlier in the week and I believe my decision will help the process of bringing in a new Chairman and Committee as it is now a blank canvas for the new members to work from. They can bring in their own man in to help achieve the success that this magnificent football club deserves.

I will be around to the end of the season at least and I will be giving the Chairman and this football club nothing less than 100%. The players and management team now need to stand up and be counted to ensure we finish the season on a high.

Thank you all and here’s to a successful future for Radcliffe Borough Football club.

Up the Boro!
