Ian Walker resigned as Desborough Town boss following the 4-2 midweek home loss to Harborough Town.

Walker had been in charge at the Waterworks Field for nearly two years and leaves the club 13th in the UCL Premier Division with 13 points from 11 games going into tomorrow’s (Saturday) match at Wisbech Town.

Walker said: “I’m gutted to be leaving.

“I have an affinity with the club. I enjoyed playing for Desborough and I enjoyed managing them as well.

“I will miss it, but the time is right for me to move on.

“I’ve had a fantastic time and have always had support from the players and committee.

“I would like to think I’ve got the club into a good position.

“We’ve brought in sponsorship and have got the club stabilised in the Premier Division.

“The time is right to pass the job on to someone else who can hopefully take the club onto the next level.”

Desborough were 14th last season and have had a mixed start to the current campaign.

The opening day win over Holbeach was followed by an 8-0 defeat at Kirby Muxloe.

Walker departs after back-to-back home losses to Muxloe and Harborough.

Chris Bradshaw has been appointed as interim manager following Walker’s departure and he will be assisted by Dave Williams.
