Derek Exley has resigned from his role as manager of Scarborough Town.

Exley has opted to call time on his spell with the Humber Premier club due to family reasons.

He was replaced for last night’s game with Brid Sports by former manager Shaun Rennison, though there is currently nobody in place to take their reins for Saturday’s game at Crown FC.

Rennison quit the role earlier in the season because of other commitments and Exley stepped into his shoes.

Town currently lie third from bottom in the table.

Their home game against North Ferriby United Reserves was postponed last Saturday due to the fact that the referee’s changing room was padlocked shut by landlords McCains.

Club secretary Sean Hunter said: “We have five games left. We had Shaun in for Wednesday, but beyond that we will have to get something sorted out.”

Exley added of his resignation: “I have just started up a new business which is taking up a lot of my time and there are also family reasons that I have to concentrate on at the moment.”
