Diss Town will take their time in replacing departing manager Michael King

The Diss Town board will not rush into naming Michael King's successor.

King, who took charge of the Tangerines in July 2020, stepped down as manager following the weekend's 3-1 home victory over Needham Market Reserves.

A statement from the club cited work commitments as King's reason for resigning, with senior players Conor Nicolle, Owen French and Matthew Wilson placed in interim charge of first-team matters.

And chairman Steve Flatman has revealed the trio will be at the helm for Saturday's derby clash against Harleston Town at Brewers Green Lane (3pm).

"It's very sad to see Michael go because he was doing well. Hopefully we'll bring in someone with the same vision as him," said Flatman.

"It's a funny time because the season has just started, but we'll take our time and make sure we get it right.

"We've had a few applicants already that we need to go through, but for now Conor, Owen and Matthew will be in charge. It will stay that way for the Harleston game."
