Spennymoor Town and Tommy Miller part ways

Tommy Miller has left his role as Manager of Spennymoor Town after seven months.

Miller, 42, has been at the club as Assistant Manager since 2016, before taking the Management reins from Jason Ainsley in April 2021.

Assistant Manager Stuart Parnaby has also left his position at the club.

The Club and Tommy have agreed that a change of approach is needed to ensure the season’s objectives do not become unattainable.

Tony Wilson, Managing Director said: “Firstly, I’d like to thank Tommy for his years of dedication and hard work for the club.

“He has been a tireless servant, demanding the very best of himself and his players at all times.

“It’s clear to everyone that the current form of the team falls short of the performance levels required to meet our strategic goals.

“This position is unfamiliar for Spennymoor Town, as we’ve enjoyed constant progress for the last decade.  Despite our form, we are still in touch with the play-offs positions, so I think it’s important to remember this and keep the current situation in perspective.

“For these reasons, we have all been adult enough to recognise that now is the time that a change is required and have acted on this.

“We wish Tommy and Stuart all the very best for the future.”

The club will begin the search for a new full-time manager immediately.  Until an appointment has been made, Jason Ainsley will take over as Interim First Team Manager. Further news on the position will be released in due course.
