Manager Steve Cunningham resigns from his role with Buxton Football Club.
When I joined Buxton back in early November it was with a short term goal - to gain promotion. I inherited a talented squad and a hugely supportive Chairman & Board. Whilst this decision might surprise a few people, the distance from my home to workplace on a day to day basis had become challenging. I couldn’t be prouder to add another League title to my growing CV and I know I leave the football club in a better place in a new league. I want to thank everyone associated with the club, from top to bottom, for your support during my time in charge. I know I go with the Chairman's very best wishes and am proud of what we have achieved together. I now wish to take stock before deciding upon my next role in football.
On behalf of the Board of Directors.
It is with regret that earlier today the Board accepted the resignation of Manager, Steve Cunningham. We respect Steve's decision and the reasons outlined around his commute and family commitments. When you appoint a new manager you are never sure of the longevity, that’s football. We thank Steve for stepping in when it suited us both at a critical moment earlier in the season and ultimately helping guide the football club to the league title. We wish Steve all the best in his future and will look back with fond memories on his time at the Silverlands. Our search for a new manager will start with immediate effect.
