Chesham United have parted ways with their manager Andy Leese, after 11 seasons in charge at The Meadow.

The Generals have picked up just four wins in 12 since the start of February which has seen them fall out of the playoff picture.

Taking over the reins at Chesham in 2007, he guided the club to one promotion, multiple playoff finishes in the Evo-Stik Southern Premier Division and a memorable FA Cup run which saw them knocked out in the second round proper by former Premier League outfit Bradford City.

Chairman Brian McCarthy said: “As we begin to think about next season and beyond, it was felt that both the football club and Andy needed new opportunities.

“The board wishes to express sincere thanks for all Andy’s hard work, passion and dedication over eleven seasons and wish him success in the future.”

He added: “Andy will always be welcomed at the club, has made many friends over the years, and I hope we see him at The Meadow in the near future.”

Joint manager Jon Meakes will take charge for the remainder of the season as the board start their search to add to the management team before the start of next season.
