Whitton United are seeking a new first-team manager following a restructure at the struggling Thurlow Nunn Division One club.
The Greens have won just three games, losing 11, this season and sit third from bottom, with only Leiston and Dereham Town Reserves, the side they entertain on Saturday (October 22), propping them up.
Duncan Wheeler, who was appointed first-team boss in January will remain at Whitton but in a different capacity, working with the club’s management committee – his primary remit being to develop the youth section and progress them towards the first team.
“Following internal movements, Whitton United are pleased to advise that our current first team manager (Wheeler) has agreed to join the club’s management committee,” said a club statement.
“His primary role is to continue the good work within the youth section of developing our youth and working with the adult section to progress players from youth to adult football.

Steve Last will be in caretaker charge of the 2014 Suffolk Senior Cup winners until a replacement for Wheeler is found at the King George V Playing Field.
