KNUTSFORD Football Club are looking for a new manager after accepting the resignation of Nick Eaton.

Following Saturday's 4-2 defeat at Greenalls PSO, Eaton offered to stand down with Reds sitting 15th in the Cheshire Football League Premier Division table having won two of their opening 10 games.

A committee meeting was convened on Sunday, where it was agreed Eaton's resignation would be accepted.

Assistant manager Andy Hurst will oversee the team in the interim while the club advertises for a new, permanent manager.

Interested parties with the relevant experience are invited to contact the club via the website –

Eaton's final game in charge saw Reds dominate the first half but waste several chances, which proved costly.

Joe Holt gave them the lead just after the half-hour mark, breaking free from a long pass from goalkeeper Martyn White before finishing well into the top corner.

On the stroke of half time, however, White was adjudged to have fouled a Greenalls man in the area and Ben McWilliams converted the resultant penalty to level the scores.

Shortly after the interval, Greenalls were awarded another spot kick after Terence Butler was penalised, with McWilliams again converting.

Ben Geary levelled for Reds after tapping home Joe Boone's cutback, but the hosts were pressing and forced White into several good saves.

Greenalls did break through as James Sigsworth's cross was headed home by Charlie Middlemore before they were awarded a third penalty in the final minute, with George Riley the guilty party this time.

Sigsworth stepped up to score and round off a disappointing afternoon for Knutsford, whose next game sees them welcome FC St Helens to Manchester Road on Saturday.
