Holdsworth leaves Chelmsford City hot seat
12:20pm Monday 4th November 2013 in News
DEAN Holdsworth has parted company from Chelmsford City after a dismal start to the season.
The former Wimbledon and Bolton Wanderers striker took charge of the club in the summer following Glenn Pennyfather's departure.
But since taking over the Clarets lost eight of the first 11 Conference South league games and were thumped 6-0 at home on Saturday by Boreham Wood.
After speaking with club officials, Holdsworth agreed to stand down from the managerial post.
Holdsworth said: "With the amount of change in personnel during the summer due to significant budget constraints on the club, we have had to make many changes, we have all tried to maintain a high level of professional standards on and off the pitch, this has been difficult on everyone.
"We knew it would take time and results would be affected but as the club want to make more financial cutbacks as stated in the past few weeks, I'm very disappointed that we haven't been able to complete the challenge on and off the pitch.
"I have come to an agreement with them to cancel our agreement. The club need to move on and I do to as a aanager and pro licence football coach. I wish them well for the future."
Assistant manager Kenny Brown will be in charge of the side on a caretaker basis until a full time replacement is found.
