Adam Flanagan will step down as manager of Vanarama National League South club Concord Rangers after Saturday`s final game of the season at title-chasing Havant & Waterlooville.
Flanagan took over as boss in May 2015 following the departure of Danny Cowley to Braintree Town.
The former Beachboys defender made the move to the Aspect Arena following a promotion-winning season with Brentwood Town in the Bostik League North.
However, having secured safety for another season in the National League South, Flanagan and his assistant Glen Alzapiedi will step down this weekend
Flanagan released the following statement: “Having secured the safety of the club in the National League South for a sixth season, Glen and I have decided to step down from our positions at the club.
“We mutually came to this decision some time ago for variety of reasons and I notified the chairman Antony Smith yesterday at our annual review.
“The chairman will now start the process of finding a replacement. Celebrating a sixth season in the division is a great achievement and I wish nothing but the very best for the club within the next campaign.
“We will fulfil our obligations and take the team for the last remaining fixture against Havant & Waterlooville on Saturday”.
When Flanagan took the job three years ago, chairman Antony Smith said: “There will be no pressure put on Adam other than to carry on the fantastic journey we find ourselves on at Concord.” He can step down having done that. A supremely hard act to follow, he did it well.
