Popular boss Brett Marshall has ended over six years in charge of Staveley Miners Welfare after resigning.
Marshall hung up his tracksuit after over 250 games in charge after the 4-0 loss to Penistone Church on Saturday.
A statement released by chairman Terry Damms said: “It is with deep regret that, last night, I accepted the resignation of Brett Marshall as first team manager, along with his assistants Paul Ward and Ian Bowling.
“It brings to a close his stewardship since 2015 when he took my offer of the job.
“I am devastated by his resignation but I will look back at his time here and say it has been an absolute pleasure to see him manage with passion, enthusiasm and a desire to see only success for the club and players in front of anything for himself – a totally unselfish and unique bloke who will be sadly missed.
“When I was engulfed and distracted in the last few years, planning and developing and finally seeing the construction work here underway, he and his management team got on with the job and assisted me in so many ways.
“An absolute gem is Brett.
“I am going to take time to seek the appointment of a replacement manager.
“I know to try and replace Brett with the same ethos and qualities will prove to be an arduous and seemingly impossible task.”
