Kings Langley Football Club have announced first team manager Steve Conroy has left the club with immediate effect.
Conroy and directors at the club had been in numerous talks to enhance the budget to buy players but were unable to agree a deal.
This season saw The Lango reach their best league position to date thanks to Conroy and assistant manager Chris Winton’s work at the helm.
In a statement, the club said: “The Club rigorously pursues a policy of self-sustainability with regards to its income and expenditure and after long discussions at more than one meeting, the directors were unable to agree that the club’s financial resources could support an enhanced playing budget as requested by the first team manager.
“Steve and his assistant Chris Winton were responsible for Kings Langley’s highest finish to date at Step 3 last season and the club s indebted to both for helping to provide an extremely enjoyable campaign.
“As such, the club wishes Steve and Chris every success in their future endeavours.”
The club has wished not to comment any further on the matter.
