Aylsham FC manager Clark explains exit
Brian Clark has built a fine football team at Aylsham – and now he is turned his attention to building a fine house extension!
The man who has led the club to back-to-back promotions and a cup triumph in the past two seasons stepped down at the end of the current campaign, with the club now advertising for his successor.
'It wasn't an easy decision because I have really enjoyed the job but I had to put my family first,' he explained. 'I am building an extension on the house and that will keep me very busy.
'I'm staying on the committee, so I will still be able to have an imput, but I simply haven't got the time to carry on being the manager.
'Whoever takes over will have a great set of players to work with – and I am sure they will do well in senior football. I'd just like to thank everyone I have worked with at Aylsham Football Club – the players, officials, sponsors and supporters -– and wish them all the very best for next season.'

Clark, a former right back for the club, has been involved with coaching and management at Aylsham for six years, initially under Graham Soanes. He stepped up to take charge for the 2010-11 season and guided them to promotion from Division Three, while also winning the League Cup.
It has been a similar success story this term, with Aylsham finishing runners-up behind Harleston Town to secure a place in Division One.
