Wroxham boss David Batch has resigned from his position at the club to become manager of AFC Sudbury.

Batch has enjoyed huge success with the Yachtsmen during his four years at Trafford Park, notably winning the Thurlow Nunn Premier Division and reaching the FA Vase final at Wembley.

But today he announced that he was leaving the Ryman Division One North outfit to take over the reigns of a Suffolk club who finished two places below Wroxham last season.

Batch said: 'It is with sadness that I am no longer Manager at Wroxham FC after signing an agreement yesterday for the position of first team manager at AFC Sudbury.

'This is a great opportunity for me to move a club forward who already have the best facilities in the league, the best pitch in the league and the highest average gate in the league.

'Despite this obvious attraction, it is one of the hardest decisions I've had to make due to the excellent relationships I have built with everyone at Wroxham Football Club.'
