IPSWICH Wanderers chairman Ed Nicholls today expressed his disappointment at the decision of manager John Clarkson to resign at the end of the season.

Nicholls does not expect his club to suffer too much from the fall-out of Clarkson's decision.

“There will be the usual merry-go-round of players, but I don't expect us to have as many departures as last summer,” said Nicholls.

“We were hoping he was going to stay, but it looks as though he could be returning to Cornwall where he is currently spending a lot of his time.

“Our minds are focussed on the Ridgeons League Cup final against Lowestoft Town on Monday, May 7 - and we will take it on to the next stage after that.”

Nicholls says that along with his committee he has begun discussing names to take over from Oulton Broad-based Clarkson.

They are inviting applications for when the job becomes vacant after May 7 and these should be sent to Ed Nicholls c/o Gemini Travel, Unit 20, Sterling Complex, Farthing Road, Ipswich, IP1 5AP.

“If more information is needed I can be contacted on Ipswich 462721,” added Nicholls.
