Braintree Town manager Danny Searle has resigned as manager with immediate effect.
Searle stepped up to the role following the departure of former boss Hakan Hayrettin in January and guided the club away from the foot of the table to 22nd position, with six wins and a draw from 16 games. Those games in charge included notable wins against both National League play-off finalists Salford City and AFC Fylde, and the club secured a fine draw at champions Leyton Orient on the last day of the season.
Chairman Lee Harding was disappointed to see Searle go: “I’d like to thank Danny for his four months at the club. He gave it his best shot and some of the results and performances will live long in the memory.
“Danny will always be welcome and we wish him the best of luck in his new role.”
Following his departure, Searle said: “I would like to take this opportunity to thank the board for the opportunity and support throughout my time with the club. I wish you the very best for the future and will help in anyway possible to ensure a smooth transition.”
