Andy Wyton has taken sole control as manager of West Midlands (Regional) League Premier Division club Dudley Town….

….following the resignation of Andy Burgess.

The latter had taken a backseat in recent weeks because of family commitments and has decided to call time on his eighteen-month stay at the Dell.

Wyton, who was assistant boss before being elevated to joint-manager over the summer, starts his solo reign with Saturday’s home game against Shawbury United.

He said: “I think Andy had been thinking about it for some time, it didn’t come as a huge surprise to anyone.

“I’ve effectively been in charge for the past few weeks and so far things have been going well.

“We have a better side than last season and I’m pretty confident of how we will do.”

Burgess joined the Robins during the summer of 2011 and guided them to a seventh-placed finish in the West Midlands Premier last year.

This term had also begun positively, the undoubted highlight being a 2-1 victory at Halesowen Town in the FA Cup.

Club chairman Stephen Austin said: “Andy Burgess stepped in at extremely short notice last season and improved the previous season’s league position.

“On behalf of the committee I would like to thank him for all his hard work.”
