HUCKNALL Town have been hit with the hammer-blow news that chairman Derek Blow has stood down and the club’s new managers have resigned.

Blow has quit the club after seven months in the hotseat.

In the fallout, amid news that the Watnall Road club is still struggling financially, new managers Ian Robinson and Gary Sucharewycz — both ex-Yellows players — have also left.

The pair had only been in charge since early November after the resignation of former boss Brett Marshall.

They had become the latest in a revolving door of managers at Watnall Road.

Ironically they had seemingly just started to turn things around and had just celebrated back-to-back wins in their bid to avoid relegation from Division One South of the Evo-Stik Northern Premier League.

Their decision is understood to have been inspired by the financial peril the club finds itself in.

However, those remaining at the helm are determined to keep the outfit alive.

The club and officials say they would like to thank Blow for his past efforts and wish him all the best for the future.

On Monday night, after a commitee meeting, David Paling, Town’s main shirt sponsor through his Worksop Van Hire business and a senior commitee member, was voted in as chairman with David Lester taking the vice-chairman’s.
