David Berks has resigned as manager of Brocton following relegation from the Midland League Premier Division.

Berks has been in charge for the past three years, taking over from his brother John, and guided the Badgers to new heights in the non-League Pyramid, as well as a fine Buildbase FA Vase run.

However, the last two seasons the club have struggled at the wrong end of the table, and after avoiding the drop last campaign, they were relegated this season.

Assistant-manager Andy Bourne has also left the club, while Berks has signalled his intention to continue playing football.

A club statement said: “The manager will ensure a sustainable and professional platform is in place for the players to develop the core skills required to make the step from youth to senior level football.

“It is essential that the management team who take up this position support the first team manager by providing reports on players ready to step up to senior level football and allowing the opportunity for first team players to drop down for a transitional period for recovery, game time or similar.

“Training sessions must be planned and delivered to the squad on a weekly basis, ensuring player commitment levels and attitudes are at the forefront of their development.

“The manager who takes up this position will also be responsible for player recruitment, as well as building the correct backroom coaching team which fits into the club’s ethos.”

It is desirable that the successful applicant will hold a Uefa B Licence, but this is not essential.

Interviews will take place in the first week of June. Please email Adam Checkley at press.broctonfc@gmail.com to register your interest for this role, supported by your coaching experience, history and contact details.
