Brady Stone and Martin Grey to leave Thurlow Nunn League Premier Division side Ely City at the end of the month
Manager Brady Stone and his assistant Martin Grey will step down from their positions at Ely City at the end of the month.
The duo were appointed back in 2014 and while relegation from the Thurlow Nunn League Premier Division was confirmed soon after, since then it has been one of the most successful periods in the club's history.
Under Stone and Grey's guidance the Robins achieved promotion from the First Division, a club-record Buildbase FA Vase run to the fifth round and back-to-back Cambridgeshire Invitation Cup triumphs.
However, the current campaign has proven to be tough going so far and Saturday's defeat to bottom-of-the-table Hadleigh United has left Ely sitting in 18th place.
A statement on Ely's website revealed that Stone and Grey had notified the club of their decision to resign, but they will remain in charge for the next four matches before walking away.
It read: "Following discussions over the weekend and today first team manager Brady Stone has expressed his desire to resign from his position, along with assistant Martin Grey.
"The committee did not want to see the management team leave their positions but appreciate the circumstances and respect the decision made.
"Brady and Martin have agreed to remain in charge until the end of the month and will oversee the next 4 games with our home game against Haverhill Rovers on Friday, December 27 as their last game in charge.
"This will allow time for the committee to appoint a new management team to take over from the new year."
