Dave Parr & Paul Anderson resign from First Team Management
Rylands Football Club have reluctantly accepted the resignation of their Guardian Cup management team of Dave Parr and Paul Anderson.
The club wish to place on record their thanks to Dave and Ando for their hard work and commitment during their time spent managing the first team at Rylands and would like to wish them the very best of luck in their futures.
Upon departure Dave said “after much consideration I have decided to take a break from the rigours of amateur football and step down as the manager of Rylands Football Club. It was a very difficult decision to make as I have enjoyed my three years as manager which culminated with the team winning the Guardian Cup a few weeks ago. Ironically this achievement helped me to reach the decision to leave the post and I feel the time is now right for somebody with the energy and drive to take the squad forward to the next level. I would like to place on record my thanks to the various players, managers, coaches and club officials who have supported me and contributed over the last three years and particularly to Paul Anderson who has been a great assistant, good friend and often the voice of reason on many occasions. The club are very fortunate to have a fantastic benefactor who has supported me unequivocally throughout the last three years as manager. There are ambitious plans for the development of the club which I genuinely hope progress to fruition and I have offered to assist the club in any aspect of this project in future.”
Paul Stretford, the Managing Director of the club’s main sponsor, Triple S Sports & Entertainment Group who have recently stepped up their involvement in the club added “Dave and Paul have been integral in the club reaching three major cup finals in three seasons, culminating in winning the prestigious Warrington Guardian Cup. They have worked long and hard during their time at the club and will always be welcome back at Gorsey Lane. As a club it is important we regroup quickly and continue with our ambitious plans for the future and with that in mind, the search for a manager that can take the club forward begins now.”
A formal application process for a new First Team manager will begin soon, with a statement being made in the coming days.
