Having been appointed in May 2018, Johnson and Morley depart the Deva Stadium after three-and-a-half-years in charge.

 

The pair arrived following relegation from the National League in 2017/18 and worked tirelessly to rebuild the team while also helping to re-energise the fan base.

 

They guided the Blues to a ninth-place finish in their first campaign, just 3 points off the National League North play-off places.

 

In 2019/20 the Blues finished sixth on points-per-game after the season was curtailed and were edged out in a play-off eliminator at Altrincham, and last season sat third in the table before the season was declared null and void in January.

 

Unfortunately results and performances this season have not met expectations and the club feels now is the right time to make a change to give them the best possible chance of improving our league position.

 

Danny Livesey, who is a UEFA B licenced coach, will take charge of the team for our upcoming fixtures, starting with Saturday’s Buildbase FA Trophy tie at Curzon Ashton.
