Rainworth are searching for a new boss after Lewis Saxby resigned.

Saxby quit his role at Kirklington Road on Thursday in order to spend more time with his family.

In an open resignation letter Saxby said the recent lockdown period had convinced him it was the right move.

“Having spent seven years in management without a break and after having the opportunity to spend more time with my family during Coronavirus I feel the time is right to extend that break,” he said.

“I realise that with a young family growing up time is precious, and I want to spend more of it with them. My eldest son will also be playing academy football next season and I want to try and give him my full attention during his first year.

“The time will also be used to sort out some of my own personal issues during this sabbatical.

“This was one of the hardest decisions I have ever had to make, as Rainworth MWFC is a club I loved being at.

“I would like to thank Les (chairman Les Lee) and all the committee for their support during my tenure. In my opinion they stand alone as the best committee in local football.

“I would like to wish the club all the best going forward and hope that I will be down at the ground to watch games when I can.

The club will now be looking to appoint a new manager as soon as possible.
