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.”
