Decision made day before Arlesey missed out on play-off place

Gary King has resigned as director of football at Arlesey Town.

King made the decision on Friday, with Saturday’s win against Weymouth his final game at the club.

Speaking about his decision, King said: “I am very sad to be leaving such a wonderful football club.

“I have thanked the chairman and everyone else at the club for what has been a fantastic five years.

“I took the opportunity to manage the football club with both hands and did everything within my capability to represent ATFC in a good light and I am proud of what we all achieved in that timescale.

“It was always the most important thing for me to try to deliver happy occasions to everybody connected with ATFC, to make everybody smile.

“There were no other football clubs involved in my decision to step down, it was just simply the right time for me to do so; I felt I had brought the club as far as I could.

“When I joined the club five years ago the chairman gave me a five year plan and set out for me what he wanted the club to achieve. I’d like to think this was a five year plan that was successfully accomplished.

“I hope whoever takes over from me has the same hunger and desire I had five years ago and delivers continued success at the club.

“Whoever takes over will be part of a great set up and will be supported by a strong chairman who has a winning mentality and who is surrounded by a very strong committee.

“I wish Arlesey Town continued success for the future.”
