Stringer resigns as Braintree boss
ROD Stringer has resigned as Braintree Town manager just weeks after leading the Essex club to non-league’s top-flight.
Having previously guided Aveley to the Ryman League Premier Division, the 42-year-old managed to win the Blue Square South with Braintree in his first season at Cressing Road.
A statement on the club’s website read: “It is with regret that we have to announce that we have not been able to reach an agreement with Rod Stringer for him to continue as manager at the club for next season.
“As a result, Rod has stepped down from his role and the club will now start the process of seeking applications for a new manager with immediate effect.”
Chairman Lee Harding said: “It’s a sad day for the club because what we all achieved together last season was remarkable. I’d like to thank Rod, Keith and Bobby for all their hard work and we wish them well for the future.”
