A FALL out between Melksham Town manager Kieran Baggs and members of the club’s board has prompted his resignation with immediate effect.

Baggs revealed on social media this morning (Friday) that he will no longer be in charge at the infiLED Arena, and that Tuesday night’s one-goal defeat to Cinderford was his last game.

The club is yet to react to the news, though player Mark Cooper appears to have also left after wishing the club well for the remainder of the season on social media.

Baggs’ announcement read: “I have enjoyed every football related moment during my time with the team and players.

“I feel very fortunate that I was part of the club’s amazing progress over the last two years, our history making with the FA Vase run and playing in front of record breaking attendances throughout.

“I am also very proud of our promotion from the Western League and our seamless transition to Southern League football.

“I am really disappointed that my relationship with certain members of the board has broken down and these very differing views, in my opinion, has had a significant impact on my own and the team’s ambition for this season.

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank every single player who has played for me over the last two years, the supporters for their amazing commitment and loyalty to the team and myself both home and away, and all the staff around the football club on match days.

“You are the heartbeat of the football club, and I wish the club well in the future.

“Unfortunately, I find my current position untenable, and this is my resignation with immediate effect.”
