Following the news that Paul Attfield has stepped down from his role as Royston Town manager, here chairman Steve Jackson gives his thoughts on the announcement.
“After careful consideration Royston Town Football Club has today accepted the resignation of Paul Attfield as first team manager.
It is well documented that Paul has been struggling with a serious illness for some time now and despite taking a rest from all activities last season Paul has continued to find it difficult to maintain the high standards and demands that he sets himself.
Whilst as a club we are naturally disappointed to see Paul step down as our manager, our sole priority is Paul’s well being and a total break from football management is paramount to him returning to full health.
In his six-year reign Paul has proved himself to be the most successful manager in the club’s history and broken endless club records.

His passion and love for the game is infectious and his enthusiastic approach has made my role as chairman so much easier.
Paul is an honourable man and has always put the club before himself, now is the time for the club to repay that favour and give him the time he needs to recover. We wish Paul all the very best and a speedy recovery.
