Newmarket Town opt to part ways with manager Michael Shinn after six years in the job
Newmarket Town have parted company with manager Michael Shinn.
Shinn had been in charge of the Jockeys since January 2018 when he took over from Kevin Grainger.
While his six-year tenure has seen a handful of semi-final disappointments, this season was shaping up to be positive with Newmarket sitting second in the Thurlow Nunn League Premier Division and looking a good bet to at least make the end-of-season play-offs.
However, the club has decided that now is the ‘appropriate time to make a change’ in the dugout.
A club statement read: “Michael, who was appointed in 2018, departs having made a significant contribution to the club both on and off the pitch. However, we now believe it is an appropriate time to a change.
“The club would like to place on record its sincere thanks to Michael for all his efforts and hard work over the years and wish him well for the future.
“The club will now be focusing on short term and long term plans with news coming in the next few days. No further comment will be made at this time.”
