New Mills Looking For A New Manager As Sykes Quits

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

Hallmark Security League First Division club New Mills AFC have confirmed that Calum Sykes has resigned from his position as first-team manager with immediate effect.

Sykes left league rivals Stockport Town in December 2016 to take the post at New Mills.

Sykes said in a statement: “I would like to thank chairman Ray Coverley, secretary Sue Hyde and the committee at New Mills for the amazing opportunity to manage the club. It has been filled with some amazing highs and some sad lows, but I am very happy that I was able to bring some smiles to the home fans with some entertaining games at Church Lane. The ending of the Runcorn Linnets game will live with me forever.

“Recent results, however, have been way below what I want and what I expect for the Millers fans, and with that in mind I made my decision to resign as manager. I wish the club, the players, the new manager and most of all New Mills fans every success.”

Following Sykes resignation, his assistant Gareth Cross and Nick Dowse have taken over the reins on a caretaker basis.

The club is now seeking a suitably qualified and experienced manager to take over at Church Lane and are accepting applications to fill this vacant post.

The successful applicant will take on responsibility for all first-team football activity at Church Lane and will continue to build on links with local junior sides.

It is essential that applicants for this post possess relevant coaching qualifications and have experience within the game.

All applications should be made/CV’s sent to the football secretary Sue Hyde by email newmillsfs@yahoo.co.uk
