Manager Chris Dolby has quit the oldest club in the world, non-league Sheffield FC.
He is unable to carry on at Dronfield due “to losing players that I have brought to the club due to the financial restraints”.
Dolby, aged 36, said: “I don’t feel my ambition is matched by the club’s board to retain the necessary players to gain promotion.
“I’ve brought as much success as is possible given the current crop of players.
“I thank everyone for their support. I want to be managing where success on the field leads to increased revenues re-invested into the squad.
“This has not happened and therefore does not match my ambition to manage and be successful at as high a level as possible.”
