Former King’s Lynn Town boss Ian Culverhouse has quit as Grantham Town manager, citing ‘personal reasons’.

Grantham slipped to their fifth straight defeat in the league on Tuesday night and the former Norwich City defender has decided to walk away from the Gingerbreads.

Grantham chairman Nigel Wedgwood said: “It is with regret that Grantham Town Football Club accepts the resignation of Ian Culverhouse.

“On behalf of everyone at the club, may I express our thanks for his hard work and commitment in his short time here.

“Ian leaves the club on best of terms and we very much wish him well in the future.”

Culverhouse took King’s Lynn to the brink of promotion last season but announced just days before their play-off matches of his intention to quit the club in the summer.

Simon Clark was brought in as his replacement but after a woeful start to the season he was sacked and replaced by Robbie Back kand Neil Fryatt as joint managers.
