Seaton Town boss to step down at end of current campaign

PUBLISHED: 15:39 07 February 2013 | UPDATED: 15:39 07 February 2013

Seaton Town boss Josh Stunell has confirmed that this season will be his last in the Colyford Road hot seat.

The Town boss advised the club of his decision prior to Christmas, but the highly regarded boss, who also looks after the Fresha league Select XI, is determined to see this season out.

Last week he lost another player with the talented Cameron Vere returning to Perry Street League side Lyme Regis.

There’s no quitting for Stunell who says: “We have enjoyed excellent and exciting times in recent seasons, but this one has been a struggle for a number of reasons. However, walking before my time is not on the agenda. I am determined to see the season out and ensure that whoever takes the job on will have a squad of talented youngsters who will the have experienced the tough times as well as the recent good times! Right now what is needed is character on and off the pitch, teams have highs and lows, right now we’re on a low and only hard work and commitment will stop the rot. This is a smashing club with bags of potential, but when the last ball of this season is kicked it’s time for me to say my good byes.”

Town lost a seventh Fresha League top flight game at the weekend when beaten 3-1 by Clyst Valley Reserves.

That result leaves them eight points above the top flight drop zone. On Saturday they host Newtown (3pm).
