Chris Tracey has resigned as manager of Diss Town

Chris Tracey has left his post as first-team manager of Thurlow Nunn Premier Division outfit Diss Town with immediate effect.

Ex-AFC Sudbury boss Tracey had only been in charge of permanent affairs at Brewers Green Lane since the end of October, but after enduring a difficult season, decided it was best to resign from his position following the team’s disappointing 3-1 defeat to relegation rivals Ely City on Saturday.

Tracey was in temporary charge of the Tangerines earlier in the season but since taking the reigns on a full-time basis, has seen his side struggle to pick up a sufficient amount of points.

Tracey’s permanent reign got off to the worst possible start as he saw his side lose 5-1 to league-leaders Hadleigh, before losing 4-0 to Mildenhall a week later.

Diss also embarrassingly lost 11-0 at home to Walsham-le-Willows under Tracey on Boxing Day, in what is turning out to be a season to forget for the Norfolk side.
