Chatteris Town boss Unwin resigns after landing coaching role at Norwich City

CHATTERIS Town’s most successful boss in decades resigned on Saturday after landing a full-time role at Norwich City.

Jimmy Unwin, led the Lilies to their first title in 35 years last season and achieved a fantastic seventh-placed finish in the Kershaw Premier League this campaign.

The 32-year-old called time on his two-year spell as Chatteris boss after becoming the Canaries’ Education and Welfare Officer.

Unwin said: “I think I’ve left the club in a good state. The biggest compliment to me is that the players have improved so much. I’m disappointed that I can’t take this club back into the Ridgeons League but I’ll have a big influence in choosing my replacement.

“I’m proud of what we’ve achieved but I’m excited and honoured about working for a Premier League club, it’s a massive opportunity.”

Unwin’s reign ended with a 2-1 defeat to Hardwick on Wednesday and a creditable 0-0 draw at runners-up Over Sports on Saturday.
