Scott Cousins has stepped down from his role as England’s six-a-side manager.

The Welwyn Garden City native, who now manages Potters Bar Town, has been involved with the national side since 2012 and was made player-manager last year.

However, he has relinquished his role due to family reasons.

He said: “I’ve had many wonderful years as a player first, then as a manager and been fortunate to go to some wonderful places.

“I’d like to personally thank everyone at the UK Socca Association and the International Socca Federation for everything they have done for me over the years I’ve been involved with the squad.”

An ISF spokesman said: “Scott is one of the most distinguished players in the world of small-sided football. He brought with him a wealth of experience and his tactical knowledge was second to none.

“He has been a fantastic ambassador with England over the years and has given us many great memories.”
