Diss Town manager Jon Abbott resigns
Thurlow Nunn League First Division North side Diss Town have announced that manager Jon Abbott has resigned with immediate effect.
Abbott - a former Diss player - took charge at Brewers Green Lane in January 2019 along with assistant Lewis Plowman following a stint at Scole United.
His tenure has been largely positive both on and off the pitch, but results of late have been disappointing and following yesterday's 7-1 loss at AFC Sudbury Reserves, Abbott has opted to stand down.
Chairman Steve Flatman said: "I’m sorry to see Jon and Lewis go and would like to thank them for all their work at the club. I wish them all the best for the future and they will always be welcome at Brewers Green Lane."
The club added in a short statement that will look to "appoint a new manager as quickly as possible".
