Driver first took over the Leiston post in May 2016 and led them to unprecedented successes.

 

He was offered the chance to manage higher up the Pyramid with Braintree Town in October 2018, but the Ipswich-based manager returned within a year.

 

Driver told www.leistonfc.co.uk: “It’s with a heavy heart that after meetings between myself and the club`s directors, I have made a decision to stand down as manager of Leiston football club at the end of the season.

 

“I want to place on record my thanks to chairman Andy Crisp and everyone involved at the club for the fantastic support you have given me on my return. We have a job to complete and myself, Tony Kinsella and the players will continue to work hard to maintain our step 3 status while the club appoints a new manager.”

 

The club have reluctantly accepted Driver’s decision to stand down at the end of the season and have made it clear there has not been any fallout between the two parties as can be seen by his desire to stay to complete the job he came back to do, namely maintain Step 3 status.

 

Leiston chairman Andy Crisp added: “Glen has done a fantastic job since his returning to the football club. His passion for the club is why he returned and we thank him for all his time, commitment and hard work. As a club we have to move on and prepare for the new season which has to be our main focus moving forward. I would like to put on record that we sincerely thank Glen for all he has done and achieved at Leiston FC, lots of good memories and success in abundance”.
