TIM Harris has resigned as manager of Worcester City.
Head of football development Stewart Watkins and captain and player coach Craig Jones will take charge of the first team as the club look for a new manager.
In a statement issued by City, Harris said: “Firstly, I would like to thank the many messages of support I have had in the last couple of days, especially with what has been a very difficult period for the club on the field.
"As manager, I must take full responsibility for the teams’ performances and lack of results, whatever anyone says, the buck stops with the manager. On this basis, I felt it was right to tender my resignation as first team manager of Worcester City Football Club with immediate effect. "I have spoken to the board of directors and have a great desire to help drive Worcester City FC forward off the field, I am willing to put time and effort in to making this happen and believe I can positively help the club move forward.
"To assist the club in the interim I am pleased that Stewart Watkins and Craig Jones will look after first-team matters until a new appointment is made.”
The statement said the board wished to thank Tim and his staff for all of their efforts whilst at the football club and looked forward to working with him in the future.
