Following Tuesday night’s defeat to Leyton Orient it has been mutually agreed, that Vanarama National League club FC Halifax Town and manager Billy Heath will part company.
A 2-1 defeat at The Shay left them four points clear of the relegation zone but they had not won in six league matches.
The decision has not been taken lightly, however.
The Board have placed on record their sincere gratitude to Billy Heath for achieving promotion at the end of the 2016/17 campaign.
Heath was appointed in May 2016 to replace Jim Harvey, who left the club following the Buildbase FA Trophy final victory over Grimsby Town at Wembley.
Heath had led North Ferriby United to promotion to the National League and also won the FA Trophy at the club in his time in charge.
He took over at North Ferriby in October 2011 and was previously in charge at Bridlington Town, Frickley Athletic and Hall Road Rangers.
