Fakenham Town, bottom of the Ridgeons League First Division without a win from 12 games, are looking for a new manager.

Vice-chairman Paul Wright announced that joint managers Stuart Woodhouse and Mark King had stood down.

“There is no ill feeling,” said Wright. “They have done a hard job in very difficult circumstances, blooding young players.” He said King was staying on with the under-15 side, and it was hoped Woodhouse would stay involved with the Ghosts after a much-deserved break. Wright described the duo as big clubmen.

Limited financial resources has meant the club has brought in several teenage players from its under-18 squad in the last couple of seasons as it has focussed on using local talent.

Wright said it was hoped to make an announcement about a new manager “as soon as possible”.

The first team game at Stowmarket goes ahead on Saturday but the reserves' Anglian Combination home match with East Harling has been postponed due to team-raising difficulties.
