Wayne Anderson has quit as manager of Fakenham Town, just weeks before an appearance at Carrow Road in the Norfolk Senior Cup final.

Anderson dropped the bombshell on Tuesday night and later tweeted: “It’s not my choice to leave the club immediately but it’s happened .and I’m not looking for another position at any club.”

His departure comes hot on the heels of Matt Henman’s decision to step down at neighbours Dereham Town at the end of the season.

In a statement on their official website, the club said: “Fakenham Town Football Club have today accepted the surprise resignation of first team manager Wayne Anderson who will be leaving the club with immediate effect.

“Wayne has been manager of the first team for seven years, with the exception of a brief break in 2015.

“The club is very grateful to Wayne for his efforts throughout his time at Fakenham Town, managing the team to promotion in 2014 and the Norfolk Senior Cup final this season. We wish him every success in the future.

“The club see this as an opportunity to seek the fresh approach and new direction required to fulfil the long-term ambition of Fakenham Town.

“Our new first team manager will be appointed before the end of the season. There will be no further comment from the club at this time.”

  • Now I'm no Hercules Poyrot but do you think he may become the new Magpies Manager? I'm off down Corals along with that fella with the dogs in his bicycle basket.
