Anthony Danylyk and his assistant Paul Donnelly stood down on a high at Evo-Stik League South club Belper Town on Saturday evening.
Appointed at the Marston’s Stadium in June as the successors to Charlie Palmer, the duo cited a change in “personal circumstances” for their decision to resign only minutes after beating Peterborough Sports 1-0 in an early season ‘six-pointer’.
The Nailers, who climbed eight points clear of trouble and into fifteenth spot before the surprise departure of their management team, paid tribute to former Leek Town boss Danylyk and Donnelly in a statement on their website after initially announcing the news using the club’s Twitter account.
The club said: “Everyone associated with the club would like to thank Anthony and Paul for their efforts and commitment to Belper, wishing them all the best for the future.”
Belper would like to invite applications for the vacant manager role.
The successful applicant will take full responsibility for all on-field football activities for the club’s first-team.
It is vital that applicants are suitably qualified and have experience within semi-professional football.
All applications and queries should be made via the football secretary Ian Wright either by email email@example.com or via phone 07768948506.
