Hunter parts ways with Garforth

Rob Hunter has left Garforth Town

Rob Hunter has left Garforth Town after three years in charge at the East Leeds club.

The sad news was announced on Wednesday night.

Hunter replaced Adrian Costello in May 2016 and successfully rebuilt the team. Costello had inherited a difficult situation and he stabilised the club before leaving for the FA. Hunter then took the job on and finished it.

Hunter’s reign, like any manager’s, has contained low points, but there has been many memorable and outstanding victories – some in the FA Cup to victories over the likes of Worksop Town, Yorkshire Amateur and AFC Mansfield.

He will be remembered for being a stable figure at the helm and also for being the man who brought prodigal son Adam Priestley back to the club.

A statement said: “The club wish to announce that we have mutually agreed to part company with our manager Rob Hunter after over three years in charge.

“We would at this point like to thank Rob for all of his commitment, efforts and hard work. We wish him well for the future. He and his family will always be made welcome at Garforth Town.

“No applications for the vacant position are required at this time and a further statement will be made in due course.”
