Adam Lee has left his post as manager of Calor Southern League Division One Central side Potters Bar Town after almost five years in charge of The Scholars.
Lee, who joined the Hertfordshire outfit in December 2008, decided to call time on his spell in charge at The Pakex stadium following Monday night’s FA Trophy exit at the hands of Whitstable Town.
In a club statement released late last night (Wednesday), chairman Peter Waller said: “He (Lee) felt now was the time to go and he wanted to spend more time watching his son Callum.
“He wished everyone well at the club and would remember his time with fondness.”
Waller expressed his extreme disappointment at Lee’s departure and thanked him on behalf of all at the club for his efforts and wished him well in any future ventures, adding that he had contributed much to the stability and success of the club over the last five years following his appointment in December 2008.
Waller added: “It is extremely disappointing to see Adam go, but the day was always going to come.
“He has established us as a step four side and each season we have improved, finishing above clubs much more fancied than ourselves.
“He has also stayed true to his principle of playing football, whatever the situation and we have seen the side play some wonderful football and received plaudits from other clubs for the way we play.
“We have not been able to maintain it over a season and other clubs will always come in to poach your better players.
“Adam will always be welcome at the club as he has been one of our best and much respected managers.
“We are still in a respectable position and have a good squad of players and I believe we can still push on.”
First team coach Jack Friend will assume responsibility for the first team whilst the club makes a long term decision on a successor.
Anyone wishing to be considered for the vacant manager’s position should e-mail Waller, with a CV, to firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone first on 07930 894924. All applications will be treated in the strictest confidence.
