Goode has been in charge of the Clarets since 2015 and managed them in close to 300 first-team matches.

The local schoolteacher led them to two second-placed finishes in the United Counties Premier Division, including last season when they also embarked on a club record run to the last 16 of the FA Vase. Goode also steered Deeping to a club-record FA Cup run his time at the helm.

Deeping were sixth when the 2019-20 UCL Premier Division season was finished early last week.

The club have invited applications for Goode’s post with current assistand boss Jack Marsden expected to apply.

Deeping Rangers Paul Smith said: “We thank Mike, and his team, for their tremendous work at the club over the past 5 seasons and hope that we can persuade him to remain with the club in some capacity.

Mike is a Deeping lad who saw Rangers as his ideal job - the club where he started his playing career within the junior section some 31 years ago.

He strived to land the UCL Premier Division title as a manager, as he had done as a player with Rangers in the 2006/07 season, but that just eluded him and his team on a couple of occasions.

“His passion for style in football will be long remembered by those associated with the club.

“We send Mike, Pamela and the girls all our best wishes for the future.”
