Mitch Austin

The club can tonight confirm the departure of Assistant Manager Mitchell Austin.

Austin, who join the Management team in the summer, has made the decision to take up the vacant managers role at United Counties Premier Division side Harborough Town.

Manager Ricky Marheineke had the following to say:

“Yesterday was a sad day for me personally and a sad day for the club. It’s only been 4 months since he arrived but Mitch has been heavily involved with all preparations and played a huge part in our good start to the season. I know how hard this decision was for Mitch, however, it was an opportunity he couldn’t turn down. I wish him all the very best of luck and I know given time he will be a huge success”

The departure of Mitch means Ricky Marheineke Jim Freeman and Gary Mills will now work as a threesome going forward.

The club would like to put on record their thanks to Mitch for all his hard work, dedication and energy both on and off the pitch. We all wish you the best of luck in your new role.
