Following Tuesday night’s result against Leek Town, Mark Hume has made the decision to step down as manager of Evo-Stik League South club Sheffield FC.
Hume was appointed in May and has previously managed Matlock Town and has also been assistant-manager at Bradford Park Avenue for four and a half years, helping them to the Conference (National League) North via the NPL play-offs in 2009/10.
Hume, who began as a professional with Doncaster Rovers, had a long and distinguished career as a no-nonsense central defender. He was part of the Eastwood Town side who reached the Third Round of the FA Cup in 2008/09 and won the NPL Premier Division title in the same season.
His other clubs include Alfreton Town, Barrow AFC, Stalybridge Celtic, Buxton and Harrogate Town.
Hume told the club: “For a number of reasons, things just haven’t worked as I’d expected and for the benefit of this club, which I have a real feeling for, it is time for a change of manager. Everyone at the club has been really helpful and welcoming and I shall miss it”
Mark Shaw has been appointed as caretaker-manager and will be assisted by Chris Dolby and Matt Roney.
