After Friday night’s 2-1 home defeat to Billingham Town, Northallerton Town manager Peter Mulcaster tendered his resignation at the Northern League Division Two club.
This was reluctantly accepted. Peter’s resignation came after a string of poor away results following one of the best starts to a season enjoyed by the club for many years.
Peter felt this was the best time for him to go to allow the club to put a new manager in place. He felt over recent games that he was unable to further exact the type of performance from the team that they have proved they are capable of already this season. He also felt that a new impetus was needed.
Chairman Peter Young said: “The club are very grateful to Peter for his hard work and great efforts on their behalf during his third term here at the Calvert Stadium. As always Peter has been a significant influence at the club. We wish him well in whatever he decides to do in the future.”
In the short term, coach Danny Mellanby will take charge of the team.
The club is now seeking applications from anyone interested in the vacant role. Ideally the person will have knowledge of Northern League football and be able to recruit, coach and motivate players.
