VAUXHALL Motors are searching for a new manager after Carl Macauley tendered his resignation.
The long-serving Macauley, a playing member of the Motors team that achieved the memorable West Cheshire League double in 1995, has been forced to quit due to increased work commitments.
The highly-rated boss has been in charge of the Rivacre Park outfit for five years but is no longer able to commit to the club after he was handed a promotion in his full-time job.
Shocked Motors chairman Alan Bartlam paid tribute to Macauley, who has worked wonders to keep Vauxhall in the Blue Square North on a limited budget.
Bartlam said: “This has happened so quickly this week and it was only last week that I was saying how Carl is already assembling his squad for next season.
“Carl has been fabulous to work with over the last few years. A credit to himself and the club and while I don’t wish to see him leave, his decision is perfectly understandable.
“He will be sorely missed at Rivacre Park – and a very tough act to follow. I believe he was the best manager in the league, achieving what he has with so little financial backing.
“I wish him and his family all the very best for the future. He will always be welcome at our club.”
