Wisbech Town have been rocked by the sudden departure of manager Dick Creasey.
Creasey announced he was leaving - citing personal reasons behind his decision - just a few weeks after committing himself to the club for another season.
A club statement read: “The board of Wisbech Town FC have this morning been informed by first team manager Dick Creasey that he will be stepping down as manager with immediate effect for personal reasons.
“Obviously this is a big blow to the club after announcing at the end of the season that Dick would be staying at the helm for the 2015/16 campaign.
“We would like to take this opportunity to thank Dick for his time at the club and wish him all the best for the future.”
Wisbech Town vice-chairman Kelley Lewis refused to add to the statement but did say that he hoped the club would be in a position to release something else later this week.
Creasey was also unavailable for comment.
During his two seasons in charge, Creasey led the Fenmen to the last eight of the FA Vase and a third-place United Counties League finish.
Speculation had been rife about Creasey’s future following rumours of a budget cut and the player departures of Adam Millson, Matt Lunn and Lea Jordan from the Elgoods Stadium.
