King’s Lynn Town manager Tommy Widdrington has resigned.
In a statement, the club says Widdrington has stepped down to take up a post at another club.
It also seems his departure was unexpected. The statement from the Linnets adds: “Tommy is under contract with us, and the club in question have not contacted us to seek to reach an agreement and nor has Tommy sought to reach an agreement that would allow us to waive the contractual position.
“We would not stand in the way of a manager (or player) who wished to progress to a higher level and has the opportunity to do so, but such matters need to be dealt with professionally and legally.
“We very much hope a swift resolution will be reached, as an alternative to a legal process.
“Meanwhile, given Tommy has made it clear that he has resigned with immediate effect (irrespective of his contractual obligations to the Club) the search for a new manager begins now.”
He was appointed in December 2022 replacing former Norwich City player Ian Culverhouse.
