MILDENHALL Town boss Trevor Munns is the latest Ridgeons League manager to part company with his club.
Munns, 38, has cited “family and work commitments” as the reason for him leaving the fourth-placed Recway club after seven years at the helm. He will take charge of his last game on Saturday in the FA Vase clash with Wroxham.
The popular Munns' loss will be a big blow to the Suffolk side who earlier this week sold striker Matty Clements to AFC Sudbury.

“I like to think I have left the club in a healthy position,” Munns said.
“We have climbed the league steadily over the past few seasons and reached the last 16 of the Vase. But I expect 100% off my players all the time and at this moment I feel I have other commitments. If I am going to find it hard to give 100%, I can't ask that of my players.

“On and off the pitch I feel I have always given it my best, but being a manager at this level means there is so much more to the job than just being in charge on Saturdays and Tuesdays.
“I told the chairman on Tuesday night and the players before the game against Leiston, that Saturday would be my last game.”
Munns is the latest in a line of managerial casualties in the Ridgeons League.
In the past few weeks Leiston have parted company with Jason Dozzell, Ipswich Wanderers with Louis Newman, Woodbridge with Mick Stockwell, Whitton with Ronnie Mauge and now Mildenhall with Munns.
John Taylor, the former Cambridge United striker, who has been assisting Munns at Mildenhall, is likely to take more of a role at the club for the Wroxham clash, although whether he gets the job full-time remains to be seen.
Munns however will leave Mildenhall with many happy memories.
“I've had some great times, but I think the night we beat FA Vase holders Didcot at the Recway a couple of seasons back will remain with me.
“We had got a great draw at their place and then to beat the Vase holders at home was special.”
