Norwich United are on the lookout for a new assistant manager after John Edridge left the club due to personal circumstances.

The Planters are inviting applications to be Steve Eastaugh's number two at Plantation Park after Edridge informed the club he wished to leave.

Eastaugh said: 'This was an unexpected departure and not one we had envisaged making. John has been a tremendous support to me personally and been very much at the forefront of the club's recent successes. We have spoken at length, and whilst we don't want to be losing a man of his experience, we fully understand his decision.'

Edridge originally joined the Planters as then manager Damian Hilton's number two before taking the top job briefly following Hilton's departure for Wroxham.

Edridge then took the role of assistant to Eastaugh during United's first season in the Isthmian League.
