The club wishes to place on record its sincere gratitude to Guy for his service to the club during difficult times. Andy Awford has been put in caretaker charge, assisted by Alan McLoughlin and David Connolly.

Alex Horne, general secretary of the FA, has said that the tax breaks should benefit more of the 29,000 grassroots football clubs across England.
He said: "It's great to see the scheme reinvigorated in a way that provides more flexibility for amateur clubs and will allow more clubs to register to become a CASC [Community Amateur Sports Club].
"The rate relief, tax benefits and fundraising opportunities that being a CASC offers means clubs can invest more in creating a great grassroots offering for the millions of boys and girls, men and women who play football up and down the country."
– Nicky Morgan, economic secretary to the Treasury
Many of the stars of Team GB started their careers in local sports clubs and I've no doubt they'll be the breeding ground for tomorrow's British Olympic legends too.
But the wonderful thing about local clubs is that they are open to anyone who wants to get involved; whether as a way of getting fit or simply of meeting new people and making friends.
These new rules will help community amateur sports clubs continue to offer a local, affordable place to take part and I hope that even more people are encouraged to become involved in sport locally.
Community sports clubs are to receive tax breaks from the Government to help increase participation.
More than 40,000 clubs will be able to keep up to £80,000 in revenue from bars, cafes and hiring out facilities before having to pay any corporation tax.
Clubs will also receive deductions to better support players with fees and expenses, and businesses will be able to donate to sports clubs tax-free for the first time.
To qualify for the tax reliefs - an extension to the Community Amateur Sports Club (CASC) relief scheme - clubs cannot charge more than £31 a week in membership fees. Any club that charges more than £10 per week in costs will have to offer special discounts.

Boxer James DeGale moved a step closer to a title shot after comfortably defending his WBC silver super middleweight crown with a unanimous points decision victory over Dyah Davis at Glow, Bluewater in Kent.
The 2008 Olympic gold medallist was dominant for the majority, although he had to recover from a slight lapse in the middle rounds. But the American never possessed the power to cause any undue concern that DeGale might suffer an unexpected blip to his world title plans.
