Adam Clark announces his decision to leave role as manager of Tadley Calleva
ADAM Clark feels his time at Tadley Calleva has been a success after he made the decision to step down as first-team manager.
Clark, who took over from Danny Dolan in May 2019, has enjoyed his time with the club, but admitted that work commitments have got in the way of him taking charge for the new season.
As a result, former Thatcham Town player Gareth Thomas will be in control of first-team responsibilities.
“With the league restructure, it’s a new start for everyone and I thought it would be right to hand over the baton to someone else.
“It has left me in a position where I had to step away and I think it’s the best for everyone really because I didn’t want to bite off more than I could chew.”
Despite the struggles at the club with the coronavirus pandemic and them not being able to complete recent seasons, Clark believes there have been some good times.
It has been successful,” he said. “We got to the FA Cup preliminary round against Truro City which was good, we had a great FA Vase run and in my first season we had a great unbeaten run and even in last season we had positive performances.
“It would have been nice to finish a season, but it has been successful and it’s a shame it’s over but other things have had to take priority.”
He has confidence that Thomas is the right man to take over the reins at Barlows Park.
“He will be great, he has coached and managed before so he will have contacts in the game and he already has a good rapport with the lads.
“He is a great guy, he wants to win at all costs and I wish him all the best for the new season,” he added.
