Paul Attfield has stepped down from his position as Royston Town manager due to ill health.

In his six years as boss at Garden Walk Attfield has guided the side from SSML Division strugglers to challenging for promotion from Calor Division One Central.

But the former Buntingford Town boss has been struggling with illness away from the game, which has forced his hand.

He said: “Firstly and most importantly my health has once again deteriorated to a level that means I cannot do the job in hand effectively enough and with the enthusiasm levels needed on match and training days.

“Secondly, it is of my opinion that the players need a fresh face at the helm with fresh ideas and the enthusiasm and mentally strong levels needed in this football division.”

Attfield’s 320th and final game in charge was a disappointing 3-1 home defeat against AFC Hayes on Saturday.

Assistant manager Duncan Easley will take over as caretaker boss for the foreseeable futire until a decision is made on who will become full-time manager.
