FC United of Manchester boss Marginson leaving after 12 years

FC United of Manchester have announced that Karl Marginson will leave his post as manager by mutual agreement, and with immediate effect.

Both the club board and Karl Marginson have agreed that this is the right course of action in the best interests of both parties.

The board announced that "we're sure that all FC United members and supporters will join us in thanking Karl for more than twelve years of fantastic service to the club.

What the club has achieved on the pitch during this time, winning four promotions, has been wonderful and much of that has been down to Karl's hard work and keen eye for spotting talented young players. Whilst off the pitch Karl's love for the club and embracing of its values has been there for all to see.

Such loyalty and commitment is all too rare in modern football and this has been a difficult decision and one that is tinged with sadness. We've had a disappointing start to the season, certainly not one that we were hoping for and we feel that the time is right for a change to enable us to improve our league position.

It goes without saying that Karl will always be welcome at this football club and we look forward to seeing him back at Broadhurst Park."
