Leverstock Green manager Steve Heath says he will be doing his best to ensure a good run of results before he bids farewell to Pancake Lane at the end of the season.

Heath announced last Tuesday that he would be leaving the club, but insists now is not the time for sentimentality.

“For me, now is not the time to be saying goodbyes and all that – that is for after the last game of the season.

“I certainly wont just be going through the motions from now until then.

“I want to finish off the season as well as we can.”

Heath has been at Pancake Lane since August 2009, and has led Levy to the last-16 of the FA Vase, secured a fourth-placed finish in the league and reached four cup finals since then.

He admits that he will be sad to leave, but feels that it is the right decision for all parties involved.

“It is going to be sad because I’ve put a lot of hard work in over the three years but I know it is the right time to go,” said Heath.

“I feel I have taken the club as far as I can with the resources available to me, and I think this is the right decision for me and the club.”

The club is now inviting applications for manager’s role.

All applicants are requested to email conformation of their interest, along with a covering letter, to club secretary Brian Barter at b.barter@btopenworld.com by Friday, May 5.
