PHIL Greenhalgh has resigned as Westerfield United manager after three seasons in charge of the Metaltec SIL Senior Division club.

He will be moving to a new role within the Swans that he says will be just as important.

“I plan to take on the role of fundraiser,” said Greenhalgh, who told the Westerfield committee of his intentions six weeks ago.

“I would not be able to combine both roles, and management is more for a younger man.

“It takes up so much of your personal time, and I want to commit myself 100 per cent on the money-making side.”

Westerfield chairman Chris Cushnahan said: “Phil has worked tirelessly and his new position will be discussed later this month at our annual general meeting.”

The Swans are seeking applications for a new manager both internal and external, and these should be made to Cushnahan on 07900 691325 or 01394 279844 by May 25.

He will be away for part of the next two weeks and contact numbers can be left on his voicemail if no answer.
