Harpenden Town manager Danny Plumb feels the 3-0 reverse to Biggleswade shows the time is right for him to leave.

The popular and likeable Plumb has been at Rothamsted Park for nine years, managing the club for the last five.

But as goals from Abraham Eze, Tom Coles and Ryan Inskip fired FC to within three points of the Spartan South Midlands League Premier Division title, Plumb reflected on what has been a difficult season for Harpenden

He said: “They are a very good side and we matched them but to give a goal away from a set-piece was really disappointing because that's not what we're about.

“That put us 2-0 down and they grew in confidence and we started to get a bit leggy.

“It's hard and I've just gone in the changing rooms and I do think it needs freshened up.

“I'm pleased that I stayed loyal and I'm leaving with us in the Premier Division, not exactly where we want to be, but we've had two good years and there's work going to be done here so the club is progressing.

“It just needs someone else to take up the reigns.

“It's definitely the right time to go.”
