Andy Welsh has resigned at Ossett United after 18 months in charge at Ingfield.
Ossett have had a difficult start to the BetVictor North West campaign having recorded just one league win and he leaves after the late home defeat to Kendal Town.
Ossett’s statement said: “Ossett United have tonight accepted the resignation of first team manager Andy Welsh. Welsh who was in his second season has been with the club since formation in 2018.
“Winning the County Cup and finishing in the playoffs in season one was an outstanding achievement and the club would like to say on record thank you to Andy Welsh and his team for their remarkable contribution to the clubs inaugural season.
“In addition the club would like to also recognise that during a very tough offseason where it may have been easier to walk away Andy and his team, remained at the club and prepared for a difficult job of restructuring the squad for season two. Ossett United would like to thank Andy Welsh for his time at the club and wish him all the very best in his future endeavours.”
There was no reference to who will succeed Welsh either in the short or long term. Neither was there a mention of his assistant Paul Quinn who is a ready-made replacement if he wanted to take on the role.
