Hadleigh United manager Christian Appleford resigns due to work commitments and is replaced by Steve Holder




Christian Appleford has stepped down from his role as Hadleigh United manager and been replaced by assistant Steve Holder.

Appleford, who took charge of the Brettsiders in January 2019 having left his long-term position as second in command at Bury Town a month earlier, has taken the decision to resign due to new work commitments.

And he will be succeeded in the dugout by Holder – the experienced striker who was recruited as Appleford's player-assistant 18 months ago.

"We also thank Christian for the professionalism he has brought to the club together with Steve in the last two and half years. We wish them both every success in the future."
