Diss Town manager Michael King resigns after win over Needham Market Reserves
Diss Town are on the hunt for a new manager after Michael King opted to resign.
King informed the club of his decision following the conclusion of this afternoon's 3-1 home victory over Needham Market Reserves – a game that saw the returning James Bemrose net a hat-trick.
The former Waveney boss was appointed the Diss chief in July of last year, inheriting a situation in which the entire senior squad had departed for pastures new.
He has gone on to build a competitive Thurlow Nunn League First Division North squad and departs with the Tangerines sitting third in the early-season standings.
A statement on Diss' Twitter page cited 'work commitments' as King's reason for stepping down, with assistant Andrew Hammersley also leaving the club.
Senior players Conor Nicolle, Owen French and Matthew Wilson have been placed in interim charge of the first team until a replacement is appointed.
