Robins looks for new manager after Hunt steps down

EVESHAM United are searching for a new manager after Neil Hunt stepped down after a fourth defeat in five matches.

Hunt, however, will remain with the Robins as head of football.

Last Saturday’s 5-1 hammering at Highworth Town left Evesham fifth from bottom in the Southern Leaue Division One South table.

Aftera meeting with chairman Jim Cockerton and the vice-chairman Chris Wright, Hunt has decided to step down as manager

In the role of head of football, the club says he will be assisting in the future development of the club, helping to take it to the next level, which has always been part of the long-term plan.

The 50-year-old stepped up from running Evesham’s youth team to take on the first team job following the departure of Carl Abbott in March 2020.

He previously managed Pershore Town, Stourport Swifts and Malvern Town and had an earlier stint with Evesham as assistant manager under Paul West and was also number two to Matt Gardiner at Redditch United in 2010.

Hunt will continue as manager until a replacement is found, and the club have thanked him for his endeavour and commitment during a very trying period.

The club are now inviting applications for the position of manager and are asking for applications to be submitted to: [email protected].
