Edgley to step down

Boston Town boss Gary Edgley has announced he is stepping down at the end of the season.

He made the decision in December for personal reasons but wanted to see out the rest of the 2021-22 campaign.

Edgley said the rigours of the job had taken its toll and he wanted to be able to spend more time with his family.

He also lost his dad last year, who had been a great supporter of his football career.

Edgley said: “I’d like to place on record my thanks to the chairman, who has been fantastic to me throughout. I spoke to him in December so we’ve both known this has been on the cards since then.”

The Poachers manager said now was the right time to make the announcement so that the club had plenty of time to find a replacement.

He said: “I’ve enjoyed my time here tremendously and have had great support from everyone at the club. It’s been a privilege to be able to help the team from struggling near the bottom of the table to be challenging for a place in the top 6.”

Edgley plans to spend more time following the footballing fortunes of his young son Albie, who has just been taken on by Lincoln City.

But he hasn’t ruled out returning to management in the future.

Edgley took over in August 2018, with the Poachers in disarray after the departure of Dennis Greene.

He has since been in charge for nearly 130 games, putting him behind only Bob Don-Duncan, Paul Todd and Bill Curry.
