Sydenhams Premier Division side Cowes Sport have been rocked by the news that manager Steve Hunt has left the club just three games into the new campaign.
The Cowes, who are currently sitting in fourth position in the table after a 19th place finish last season, have placed Ian Potts in temporary charge while the search for a new permanent manager takes shape.
Hunt has been in the hot seat at Westwood Park since 2017 and has a distinguished history in the game.
As a player the Birmingham born winger represented a host of clubs including the likes of Aston Villa, West Brom and Coventry City and had two spells in the United States representing New York Cosmos.
Hunt also picked up two international caps for England in 1984.
The 61-year-old had a spell in charge of Willdenhall Town in 1988 before taking up the role of Youth coach at Port Vale and Leicester City.
