Arnold Town and Carlton Town part company with managers

Arnold Town and Carlton Town parted company with their managers this week after facing battles against relegation for the majority of the season.

Arnold Town announced they had parted company with manager Wayne Looker on Thursday

Club chairman Steve Holland issued a statement on the club’s official website.

He wrote: “I personally want to place on record my thanks to Wayne for all of his efforts over the season and the tail end of the season before.

“Wayne has given his all and worked tirelessly, and been a real pleasure to work with; I really feel our final league position does not reflect on his efforts- but that’s football.

“We part on good terms and I am sure our hardcore support will join me in thanking Wayne for his efforts and wish him all the best for the future.

The club swiftly announced that Dave Marlow would now replace Looker.

Marlow was previously with teh Eagles during the 2016/17 season.

He will be joined by Jonathon Todd as joint manager and Reece Jackson who returns to Arnold as 1st team coach/Assistant Manager.

Carlton Town yesterday announced that they have parted company with manger Wayne Scott following the conclusion of the 2018/2019 season.

Carlton ended in a relegation position but have stayed up courtesy of Gresley ending below them and AFC Mansfield failing a ground grading.

The club say they will now move for their number one target to replace Scott at the helm.

Chairman Mick Garton told the official club website: “I would like to place on record our huge thanks to Wayne for the last 4 years.

“In his first season, we achieved a 33 per cent win rate which was an improvement on Les Mcjannet’s final season and in the second season we achieved one of the greatest nights in our history beating Basford United 4-1 in the Senior Cup Final at Meadow Lane”

“Last season was blighted by the fixture backlog and this season started promisingly and at the half-way stage, despite our poor home form, we had excellent results away from home”

“In the second half of the season however, it’s fair to say the wheels have come off, but despite our problems in the league, Wayne still managed to lead us to another cup final and I thought we gave a good account of ourselves at Mansfield Town despite defeat to Basford.”

Mr Garton added: “I have listened to Supporters in recent days and despite the view of the need to change things at the club, there was still a lot of warmth for Wayne and in particular for all the work he has put into the club and the commitment he has shown in his 4 years at the helm”
