Mark Bennett has informed Tony Shea, chairman of Southern Combination League Premier Division club Pagham, that he will be standing down as first-team manager at the end of this current season.
The former Littlehampton Town boss took charge at Nyetimber Lane in January 2016.
Bennett told the chairman that he has enjoyed his time in charge of the team and grateful for all the support he has received, but feels he needs a rest from football management generally.
Bennett will continue to take charge of all first-team matters until the end of the season, including the cup final on May 1st and then stand down.
The club has reluctantly accepted Bennett’s decision and will, of course, support him in his efforts to end the season on a high.
Shea said: “I would like to thank Mark for the continued hard work he has put into the success of the current season. We would also like to wish him all the best for the future”.
