Clubman Jimson ‘absolutely gutted’ to resign as joint manager of Wisbech Town Reserves
CLUBMAN Mark Jimson admitted he was “absolutely gutted” after a lack of players forced him to resign as joint manager of Wisbech Town Reserves.
Managerial duo Jimson and Mel Mattless walked out on the second string yesterday - with less than a week to go before the start of the Kershaw Senior A season.
Their departures throw the future of the reserves into doubt - and the club are set to hold crisis talks after the first team’s FA Cup clash with Desborough Town tomorrow.
Jimson said: “It was a combination of things. I tried my hardest to put a side together and it was like banging my head against a brick wall.
“Everybody was really positive after we stayed up at the end of last season but now they aren’t coming to training. It’s just not worked out and I’m absolutely gutted.
“I feel guilty as hell over the situation that it’s left the club in because its not the way I like to do things. I wanted to build something, staying up was just the start.”
Jimson may now turn his attention towards youth coaching at Wisbech.
