Shaun Higgins has resigned as manager of Mossley AFC with immediate effect.

Shaun's departure comes on the back of a dreadful run of results that has seen the Lilywhites take only a single point from the last eleven games.

The Directors would like to place on record their thanks to Shaun for all of the hard work he has put in on behalf of the club since his appointment last June and would like to wish him all the very best wishes for the future.

The Mossley Directors have appointed former Woodley Sports manager Gareth McClelland as Shaun's replacement on a caretaker basis through to the end of the season. He along with his caretaker assistant Eddy Haslam will take charge for the first time in Saturday's local Seel Park 'derby' against Woodley Sports. Woodley of course are now managed by former Mossley boss Chris Willcock and have a large number of former Mossley players in their squad.
