VANARAMA National League South outfit, Chelmsford City, has announced that they have parted company with long-serving manager, Rod Stringer following an indifferent first half of their season.
A statement posted on the Clarets official website from Chairman Steve Shore explained: “Rod and his team have provided many moments that will go down in the Club’s history, including three years in the playoffs and three Essex Senior Cup finals, for which we will always be grateful.
“However, performances this season have not reached those of previous years and as such, the Board have decided that a change is now required.
“The process to find a suitable replacement begins immediately. The Board are unanimous in believing that the successful candidate will be the person that provides the best balance between proven managerial success and the ability to inspire and support the delivery of the Club’s 10-year vision, as an Ambassador for the many elements of our Community.
“Arrangements for the interim leadership of our first team whilst the recruitment process is completed, will be confirmed within the next 48 hours.”
