Chorley have announced that manager Matt Jansen has resigned with immediate effect.
The ex-Blackburn Rovers and Crystal Palace striker had led the Magpies to successive play-off appearances in the Vanarama National League North. It was the 40-year-old’s first managerial job and the Carlisle native had this to say to the club’s website on his departure:
“I have thoroughly enjoyed all the years I’ve spent at Chorley FC. I am sure the club will go from strength to strength with the squad that has been assembled for the new 2018/19 season and wish the team every success in the years ahead.”
