Gary Moran tendered his resignation from the role of Rugby Town manager last night, which was accepted by the club’s Board of Directors.
Moran, 34, took the player-manager’s role in September 2016 after James Jepson’s short stay with the club ended but he could not guide Rugby away from the drop zone meaning the club were relegated to Step 5 of the non-league pyramid.
Valley Director Neil Melvin commented: “Last season was clearly a very difficult and ultimately desperately disappointing one for everyone involved with the club.
“The Board would like to place on record our thanks to Gary for taking the reigns at a particurly tricky juncture back in September and seeing the job through.
“We will now be seeking a suitable successor with the primary objective of restoring Step 4 football to Butlin Road at the earliest opportunity.”
