It was with regret that we heard before today's game at Clacton that John Dreyer (pictured) was resigning as manager.
Speaking after the 4-2 FA Cup win, John talked of his need to give more time to his family whilst he had earlier also spoken of the pressure that his duties as manager had put on his developing business career. As he juggled the responsibilities he had become concerned that he was not giving his best to the club and players, and felt it was only right to hand over the reins.
John joined us in the wake of Craig Edwards' defection to Cheshunt and after early set backs he shaped a team that began to pull clear of the consequent relegation threat. In the 28 competitive games under his management Ware won 9 and lost 13. If you add in the seven recent pre-season friendlies there are another four wins to be added in.
We wish John well and the best for the future.
Management responsibilities will be taken over by his assistant Paul Halsey who will have former Ware players Jon Stevenson, Michael Bardle and recently signed John Frendo as his management team.
