STEVE Lomas has resigned as manager of St Neots Town following the departure of chairman John Delaney, plunging the club's future into uncertainty.

Delaney resigned yesterday afternoon (Thursday), claiming his position had become untenable, and manager Lomas followed shortly after finding out the news. A host of other senior figures at the club, including director of football Mel Hancock, have also left with immediate effect.

Delaney said: "I have resigned from the club as I did not feel I could feel I could continue working at the club any longer.

"People were questioning my integrity, an accusation that was totally unfair, and I felt my position had become untenable.
