The club is now looking for a coach with a proven track record and significant experience to come in and take the team forward.

“This last two seasons has been fantastic.” Andrews told the club’s official website.

“When I took the role on I was nervous that stepping up from being a player would be incredibly difficult. However, the players gave me their support and after a tough first season, everyone took the learnings and this year we are fighting for promotion.”

“However, as a coach my job is to be honest with myself and the players. When I sat down to start planning next season and how to improve further, I kept coming back to the same answer - fresh ideas from an experienced coach. This club means the world to me and I will always be around for advice and may even lace up the boots again for next season.”
