Charnock Richard boss Andy Westwell has revealed why he is leaving the club at the end of the season after 18 years at the helm, the Lancashire Post report.

Former player Westwell took over in 2001 and guided Charnock to the West Lancashire League Premier Division title six times and steered them to the North West Counties League in 2016.

His side were promoted again and he will leave the side in the NWCL Premier Division.

Westwell’s final game will be at Mossie Park on April 27, when Charnock host 
Whitchurch Alport, with former reserve-team boss Ryan Donnellan taking over in the summer.

And Westwell says the reason behind his exit is that he thinks it is the right time to go and for some fresh blood to take over.

“I just think I have been there a long time,” he said. “It is not that I can’t take the club any further – I just feel it is the right time to step away from it.

“I don’t even know if I’m looking for a fresh challenge. I have been there a long time and I think the club has gone as far as it can go, as far as semi-professional football goes, unless they get a big influx of money from somewhere.”
