Bridgwater Town acting Chairman Bob Buckingham has announced that manager Paul West has stepped down from his role at the club.
The decision was announced in a statement on the club’s website.
The statement read “It is with some regret that this afternoon our First Team Manager Paul West tendered his resignation. Paul leaves us on amicable terms and myself and the Committee wish to thank him for all the hard work he has put in especially considering the duress he was often under off the pitch and also the fact that he was fielding at times a young and inexperienced squad.
“It will be noted that Paul gave many local youngsters an opportunity to make the step up into Southern League football and with this in mind the remit that he was given to retain the club’s Southern League status was always going to be tough, however, this was achieved and for that we are extremely grateful to him.
“As they greatly impressed during the season, it is hoped that the squad will stay with the club and continue their own journeys with us as despite the problems that the newly formed committee are currently facing, there is a considerable air of optimism regarding future developments both on and off the pitch.
“I understand that at times like this speculation and rumour will be rife, however an announcement regarding Paul’s successor will be made as soon as possible and we ask you to bear with us while this process is taking place.
“We thank you for your patience, but please note that no further comment will be made on the subject at this present time
