Boss Russell Departs Hucknall

High-profile managers Duncan Russell and Paul Hall have walked out on Central Midlands League club Hucknall Town before they have picked a team or even signed a player.

Ex-Mansfield Town boss Russell, 55, and 1998 World Cup star Hall, 41, quit this week after Town confirmed they are to drop two more divisions on the Non-League ladder to cut costs.

"I am not willing to go down to that level," said Russell (pictured), who was appointed only six weeks ago. "Paul and I have a bit more to offer than that.

"I was really looking forward to the challenge. But I can't flog a dead horse. There is no funding available and it would be an impossible job to do.

"To be honest, I don't know how the club are going to survive. It's just so sad."
