STRATFORD Town have parted company with manager Tim Flowers after less than four months in charge.
Chairman Jed McCrory cited that former Premier League winner Flowers had “other projects” he was keen to work on
Flowers had helped steer Stratford to safety in the Southern League Premier Central following his appointment in November with the Bards 11 points clear of the relegation zone with eight matches left to play.
And the former England international felt his job was complete at the Arden Garages Stadium after winning five, drawing seven and losing five of his 17 league games in charge.
Flowers said: “I came in to help in November with a brief from the club and with eight games to go this season it looks like we have set for our status in the division.
“I thought it was a good time for someone to come in and start preparing for next season. I leave friends with Jed; I’ve got a lot of respect for him and he’s doing a great job here.
“I wish the club, and everyone involved with it all the best going forward and I’ll have my eye on results and I hope everything goes well.”
Chairman McCrory added: “I’d had a few discussions with Tim about the rest of the season. He’d indicated that he had some other projects that he was keen to work on and we amicably decided that for both parties it was a good time to move on.
“I’d like to thank Tim for his efforts during his time with us, he’ll be welcome back anytime to the Arden Garages Stadium and we wish him good luck in the future.”
The club has placed on record its thanks to Tim for his time with the club and wishes him well in the future.
The first team coaching staff will take charge of the team during the interim as the Bards begin their search for a new manager.
