Glenn Snell has left his role as interim Whitton United manager by mutual consent, after four years with the Thurlow Nunn Premier Division’s bottom side.

The 30-year-old took over from Paul Bugg on a temporary basis in the summer, but an exodus of players has seen the 2014 Thurlow Nunn Division One champions and Suffolk Senior Cup winners slump to the bottom of the Premier Division.

Whitton host local rivals Ipswich Wanderers, in the league on Saturday, six points adrift of safety, having lost their last seven league games.

Despite the disappointing situation, Snell said: “We have left on really good terms.

“When I took the job as interim manager, it was to stay and help the club out of the situation it was in. In an ideal world, I would have left with Paul (Bugg)

“But players have departed the club and it’s been very tough, although I will say I am not leaving because of results and the club is not getting rid of me because of results either.

“I have used all my contacts up and the club is probably stuck in a rut and I don’t want to see it in that situation.”
