Asfordby Amateurs have been rocked just weeks before the new season by the departure of its management team of Will Andrew, Nigel Shaw and Danny O’Brien.

The Leics Senior League club enjoyed their best campaign for many years last season as they reached the semi-finals of the Beacon Bitter League Cup.

Amateurs also enjoyed their highest league position in several years when they finished the season fifth in Division One.

Andrew said: “We have had a great couple of years here. Although we have had no significant players leave the club over the summer, unfortunately I feel we have different ambitions from the club and Asfordby Acres.

“I wish the club all the best for the future and the new management team.”

Andrew, who now aims to complete his UEFA B licence, and his management team turned down several offers from oter clubs over the summer and hoped to raise the ambitions within the club and from the players.

Anyone interested in the vacant managerial posts at Asfordby should call chairman Ian Wakefield on 07535 640666.
