Lions duo Jake Davies and Booby Lofthouse stand down at Stockport Town

Stockport Town

Jake Davies and Bobby Lofthouse have stood down as joint managers of North West Counties Football League Stockport Town.

Along with U21s boss Callum Davies, they resigned on Wednesday night with their side fourth from bottom in NWCFL Division One South.

The Lions announced the departures from the Stockport Sports Village on Twitter and in a statement on their website promising to update fans with more news.

Stockport Town chairman Rob York thanked all three for their work with a trip to Cammell Laird next up for the managerless Lions on Saturday.

York told the club’s website: “Jake, Bobby and Callum have been outstanding people during their time at the club and I thank them for their dedication over the last 18 months.

“As a club, we pride ourselves on providing opportunities for young players and coaches and we are happy to be a part of their journey into management.”

Davies first took sole charge in March 2018, guiding the club to the final of the Cheshire Senior Cup in the first few weeks of his reign.

He said: “I would like thank Stockport Town FC for the opportunity to step into this level of football and will always be grateful for the support received.

“I would also like to thank the players who have been an absolute credit to work with during my time at the club.

“Unfortunately, it is time to move on, it has been hard to say goodbye but I wish the lions the biggest success in the future.”

Based in Woodley, the club was only founded in 2014, starting out in North West Counties Football League Division One in season 2015–16 after battling at Wembley to be accepted into the competition.

Calum Sykes was the club’s first manager for two full seasons before leaving in December 2016. Davies and Lofthouse took over from his successor, Dave Wild, in March 2018.
