Bartlett has been forced to quit by increasing work commitments. He took over in the summer after title-winning boss Andrew Bradley left and has led the team to second spot in the top flight.

Without Bartlett, Sports Reserves were beaten 5-2 by higher level Thrapston Town in a Northants County Cup at PSL at the weekend. Ali Nyang and promising youngster Dylan Kilford scored the Sports goals.

The club are seeking to make an external appointment to replace Bartlett.
