AVELEY have parted company with manager James Webster.

Webster took over at Parkside in October 2017 after enjoying a successful seven-year stint in charge of Brightlingsea Regent.

Having led the R’s to the Isthmian Premier League after clinching the Isthmian North title in the 2016/17 season, the Millers hoped Webster would be able to enjoy another promotion.

But, with Aveley currently fifth in the standings, it has been confirmed that Webster has left the club.

A club statement read: “Aveley Football Club has this afternoon parted company with manager James Webster by mutual consent.

“An increased workload has led to James being unable at present to dedicate himself totally to manage our football club.

“It is with reluctance all parties have come to this decision.

“The club wishes to thank James for his time at Parkside and wish him all the best for the future.”
