ANTHONY Robbins believes he still has plenty to offer as a player which is why he has resigned as manager of Pegasus Juniors.

The former Hereford and Westfields player combined the two roles last season, but said he found it difficult.

“As a player, I’ve got to be fully focused on my own game, so I found it difficult playing and managing at the same time," said Robbins.

“It is much easier seeing the game from the sideline, but while I can still play and have got a few years left, then I want to go back to just playing.

“I think I can be a better player next season because I can get back to being fit and I am still young enough.

“However, because I was a young player-manager, I can use that experience in years to come.”

Robbins said he handed in his resignation three weeks ago.

“I gave my reasons and they asked me if I could reconsider so it gave them a week or two to see if they could contact anyone and see what offers came in,” said Robbins.

“I have had some little conversations with some people who knew I had quit, but I haven’t spoken to anyone properly because I wanted the dust to settle.

"It depends on the ambition of the club and the aspirations they have got.”

Pegasus finished ninth in West Midlands (Regional) League Premier Division and Robbins says it is important that the new manager keeps as many of the current squad as possible.

“I left them with a really good young squad and I think anyone coming in will need to keep those players because they’ve made good progress” said Robbins.

“I wish them well and thank them for placing their trust in me.”
