The club have reluctantly accepted the resignation of Head of Coaching, Gary Richards.

Gary will leave his Academy role at the end of the season to concentrate on senior football and, in particular, his role as First Team Assistant Manager in which he will continue to act.

The club would like to thank Gary for all of his hard work in what was a challenging year for the Academy, and the Academy will be a better place for what Gary has put in place over the last 12 months.

The search for a new Head of Coaching will start immediately.
