Charlesworth leaves Vale

Deveronvale has begun the search for a new manager to build on the good work and foundations put in place by Charlie Charlesworth over the past three seasons. Charlie has asked the Board to accept his resignation as he feels he is unable to continue to give the time the Vale manager’s role requires due to the demands of his work and his family commitments. 
 
A club spokesman said: "The club fully understands the conflicting calls on Charlie’s time and has reluctantly accepted Charlie’s resignation. The search for a replacement has started and it’s hoped that a suitable candidate can be identified quickly. In the interim Stuart Cameron and Colin Smith have kindly offered to look after team matters.
 
The Board, the management and the players would like to express their deep appreciation of Charlie’s commitment, efforts and services in support of Deveronvale and would wish him well in his future activities"
