Craig Edwards has resigned as manager of Bostik League Premier club Kingstonian with immediate effect.

Edwards joined the K’s in March 2017 with six games to go in the season and inspired a tremendous run that saw the club survive a relegation battle that they looked like they wouldn’t win.

The 2017/18 season began with the memorable 1-0 victory at the AGP Stadium over his previous club Billericay Town and he had taken the club to its current position of seventh place in the table.

Kingstonian`s joint-chairman John Fenwick said: “It is with the utmost regret that we have this morning received Craig’s resignation and we will place on record our appreciation of the job he did since his appointment, not only keeping us in the Premier Division last term but taking us into the top half of the division this time around.

“We wish Craig all the best in his future endeavours and thank him for his work. The club has now begun its search for a replacement first team manager and will make an announcement as soon as is possible.”

Edwards said: “I’ve had a great time at the club and the supporters have been fantastic to me. Thank you all for your assistance, especially secretary Phil Whatling, who has gone out of his way on many occasions for me. Best wishes for the season and the new ground.”
