Manager Brett Whaley quits March Town United to take Yaxley job

MARCH Town United’s most successful manager for more than a decade has quit the club to take charge of Yaxley.

Brett Whaley was confirmed as the new manager of the UCL side on Saturday, a month after he led the Hares to their highest league finish since 1997.

Following Whaley out of the GER exit door will be assistant manager and centre-back Chris Lenton - but it is expected that several other March players will also complete the switch.

Whaley spent much of his playing career at Yaxley before managing the reserves between 2005-07. He said he was sad to leave the Hares but delighted to be taking charge of a “club I love”.

Whaley said: “The Yaxley job is pretty much the only one which would make me leave March. I see it as my club.

“I’m sad to leave because we were building something - but March will keep moving forward.”
