Nine days after St Albans City FC’s disappointing FA Cup defeat to AFC Sudbury, the club confirmed on September 29 that head coach Ian Allinson had agreed to step down as first-team manager with immediate effect.
The club said: “We would like to extend its thanks to Ian for his hard work and dedication over the last six years and will always cherish the memories from this period, including last season’s FA Cup first-round victory, a game televised across the nation and beyond and a moment which will forever be remembered in the club’s history.”
Although Ian will not be involved with the footballing side of the club, he will continue his non-football role as commercial manager.
The club have already received a number of applications for the Head Coach role and is still inviting interested parties to apply. The closing date will be Sunday, October 9 at 17.00. All applications will then be reviewed the following week.
Applications can be sent to the club secretary at email@example.com
David Noble is currently serving as Interim Head Coach, supported by the club’s backroom coaching and medical team.
Noble oversaw the Saints’ 2-0 win over London Colney last night (October 5).
