"We would like to put on record our thanks for Fergus and his assistant Darryl for their efforts in trying to bring success to the club.
"After an initial five-game unbeaten run that moved us off the bottom of the league, things haven't worked out.
"We have not secured a point since the turn of the year and, with a gut-wrenching 6-0 defeat to bottom club Gorleston on Friday night, the club decided it was time for a change to try to secure our future in the Thurlow Nunn Premier League.
