Curtis Woodhouse has resigned as Tadcaster Albion after just six months in charge to take a job “higher up the pyramid”.
But he leaves them in a good place as Tadcaster have had a fantastic start to the BetVictor North West campaign and are second in the table, one point off top spot with three games-in-hand.
Assistant manager Martin Foster has also left.
Woodhouse said: ”I’d just like to place on record my thanks to Tadcaster for giving me the opportunity to manage the football club, I absolutely loved my short spell at the club.
“Matt (Gore) and Andy (Charlesworth) and everybody behind the scenes have been nothing but a pleasure to work with. It hasn’t been an easy decision at all to leave and one I mulled over and over but in the end I just felt I couldn’t turn down the opportunity given to me.
“I’d like to place on record my sincere thanks to the fans that have really backed myself and the team.
“Also I’d like to thank the lads that have been nothing short of incredible, game after game they have put sweat on the shirt and deserved all the plaudits. I’ll always have a soft spot for what is a fantastic club.”
If it is to be assumed that he is to become manager of his new club, AFC Fylde and Hartlepool United are going for a new chief. Woodhouse has previously applied for the Hartlepool post.
