PRESTEIGNE St Andrews boss Mark Weiland has resigned just three games into the new season.

Weiland took charge at Llanandras Park after the departure of Jamie Allen in the 2015-16 season but admitted he was “no longer enjoying the job”.

Weiland said the timing of his decision was not ideal but felt the club needed a fresh approach.

"I am disappointed as I was really looking forward to this season but sadly I wasn't able to bring in the players I wanted during the summer," he said.

"It is a great shame but I am no longer enjoying the job and, at 28, I really want to focus on playing.”

Presteigne's chairman Andrew Crowe said the Spar Mid Wales League, Second Division outfit had accepted Weiland resignation with “great regret”.

"Mark has worked really hard to try to turn things around during his time in charge but it just hasn't worked out for him," he said.

"We are all bitterly disappointed for him as he is a real clubman and we were all willing him to do well.

"Mark has been a long-time player, as well as a committee member and reserve-team manager, while his family has had a long association with the club.

"We would stress this has been entirely Mark's decision and we are hoping he will continue to play for the club and maintain his place on the committee," he added.

Tom Ammonds will step up as caretaker manager as Presteigne and will be assisted by Dale Tomkins until the committee has had time to make a decision on the first-team manager's role.
