Haverhill Rovers have this afternoon (Tuesday) sacked player-manager Michael Shinn after just 17 months in charge.

The 31-year-old was made Rovers manager at the end of September 2014 following the dismissal of his predecessor Dean Greygoose.

He left AFC Sudbury, where he had been player-assistant-manager and under contract, to take up the position.

Haverhill Rovers chairman Ali Shulver said the club’s committee decided to sack Shinn because the relationship between the player-manager and officials and board members had broken down and ‘become untenable,’ due to off-field issues.

Rovers finished last season one place outside the bottom three in the Thurlow Nunn League Premier Division but after a tough start to this campaign began to climb the table and made it into the top six. They are currently in 12th place

Shinn had brought a lot of local players into the team, recruiting from the likes of West Wratting and Haverhill Borough and given a lot of players that came up through the youth ranks a chance to shine in the first XI.

Attendances for home games had also risen this season.

Shinn’s final game in charge was the 1-1 draw at Hadleigh United last Friday.
