Ian Street said: “I had informed the committee a few weeks ago that my plan was to step down at the end of the season, and allow a smooth transition to my replacement.
“After moving house in the summer, the job had become difficult due to the increased travel. I have made the decision to finish earlier than planned, and I now wish to find a new challenge.
“We have come such a long way in a short time. From non-existent to be regarded as one of the strongest clubs in the North West Counties Premier Division is testament to all the hard work that goes on behind the scenes.
“There are some really good people at the club, and I thank them and wish them all the best for the future”.
