Haverfordwest County part company with manager Sean Cresser.
The Bluebirds are currently second in Welsh League Division One, having played a game less than leaders Penybont.
They have won each game they’ve played in, including a convincing Nathaniel MG Cup win over Llanelli Town.
Cresser also managed the side as they beat Welsh League Division One new boys Pontypridd Town 10-1 at the Bridge Meadow. The goal conceded to Pontypridd is the only goal they’ve conceded this season.
The Western Telegraph say that they understand that both Haverfordwest and Sean Cresser have parted company today.
Haverfordwest County later confirmed it saying:
“Haverfordwest County have parted company with manager Sean Cresser quoting differences of opinions on several important issues.”
Although the club have made a good start to the season on the field of play. It was the opinion of the board that, at this stage, a new style of management was required.
The club would like to thank Sean for his hard work and loyalty over the past six years.”
He has been at the Bridge Meadow Stadium for the last six seasons.
Cresser originally began the job in a joint-role with Chris O’Sullivan, finishing fourth in Division One before taking sole charge last season, leading the Bluebirds to a second-place finish.
The former Milford United man hung up his boots early, to manage Carmarthen Town reserves, before working as an assistant at Newcastle Emlyn.
This season, Aberystwyth Town assistant manager Wayne Jones returned to Haverfordwest County for a second spell, working in the same role at the second tier club.
Haverfordwest are scheduled to play on the weekend in the Second Round of the Welsh Football League Cup, against Division Two outfit Bridgend Street, at the Bridge Meadow.
