Strathroy Harps have confirmed that Darren Teague has stood down as manager just five months into the job.
Teague, who was appointed back in May as a successor to Benny McElholm, has resigned for “personal reasons”.
Teague’s former backroom team of Shane Horisk, Dermot McKeogh and Kevin Sloan will look after first team affairs for the foreseeable future and will be in charge for Saturday’s Irish Junior Cup second round tie at Crumlin United.
Teague’s decision follows a poor start to the season by Harps, who had won just one of their opening six league games.
Teague’s resignation also comes days after he was hit with a nine-game ban for an incident he was involved in during the recent Division One league game against NFC Kesh.
A club spokesman said the suspension wasn’t a factor in Teague, a former Mercer League, Mulhern and Irish Junior Cups winner, calling it a day.
The spokesman placed on record his thanks to Teague for his valued contribution. He, too, thanked the Harps backroom team for taking charge in the meantime.
