Attwood took charge of the city side in early May, but has moved on due to issues with the club’s management structure.

Popular local man Carl Johnson, who quit early in the season but then returned to an assistant team boss role last month, is now back in charge.

In a club statement, promoter Ged Rathbone confirmed: “There is no bad feeling on either side - it is quite simply a case of Jason not being comfortable working within our structure where all members of the management team have an input on team affairs.
