Gary Ollard has resigned as manager of ChromaSport & Trophies United Counties League Division One club Buckingham Town due to personal reasons.

After being appointed in May 2016, Ollard lead the Robins to fifth place in the table in his first season at the helm.

A good run in the Buildbase FA Vase saw the Robins reach the First Round proper before being edged out in a nine-goal game at Bedfont.

Last Saturday’s 9-1 defeat at second-bottom Oakham United was a very difficult day for the club, although Ollard’s resignation was not as a direct result of that defeat but to due personal reasons.

The club have thanked him for his hard work and commitment to the cause for the last two years, and have wished him well.

Ollard’s assistant Dave Barron will step up to become manager for the remaining matches of the season.
