Lyttle quits Hucknall

Former Tamworth boss quits after seven months in charge

Des Lyttle has quit Hucknall Town as the club looks to rebuild for the 2012/13 season.

Lyttle joined the club in October 2011, and has been faced with a tight budget throughout his tenure.

Speaking to the Hucknall Dispatch, the 40-year old also stated his length of commute was also a part of his decision, saying, "It’s a one hour, 20 minute drive for me to and from Hucknall, and I would have been eating up a lot of the budget myself on wages and travelling expenses. It just wouldn’t have worked.

"I didn’t want to try and start something and then leave pre-season or ten games into the season. It’s time for the club to get someone local in to try and move the place forward. It is my decision 100% and nothing to do with the club."

Regarding the position, the club would like to hear from experienced applicants with a strong knowledge of the local non-league scene.

Applications can be sent to either Liz Morley at or Vice Chairman Tony Knowles at
