Stowmarket seeking Jay’s successor

STOWMARKET Town are searching for a new manager following the resignation of Steve Jay.

Jay, who was previously manager at fellow Ridgeons League Division One side Hadleigh United, resigned his position on Friday with immediate effect.

John Griffin has taken over in a caretaker capacity and was in charge for Saturday’s home league fixture against Brightlingsea which saw Stowmarket win 4-0 to record their first league victory of the season.

The Greens Meadow club have made a disastrous start to the season and remain bottom of Division One of the Ridgeons League after losing their first seven matches in a row before Saturday.

A club spokesman issued a statement saying they would like to thank Jay for his efforts and hard work during his time in charge.
