Niall Currie has stepped down as manager of Carrick Rangers after almost three years in the job.
The 48-year-old announced his decision following Saturday's 2-1 defeat to Portadown at Shamrock Park.
He joined Rangers at the end of May 2018 and, in his first season in charge, guided the club to immediate promotion via a promotion play-off victory over Ards.
Last season, Carrick finished eighth in a campaign curtailed by the pandemic but the club have struggled this term, recording only five league victories to end the season in 11th spot.
Revealing the news after the Portadown loss, he said, "With a heavy heart I will be resigning as Carrick Rangers football manager.
"The club has been brilliant, I have loved every second of it. I would just like to thank the supporters, first and foremost, for being fantastic with me from day one. The support I have got since I came to the club has been second to none.
"And, finally, I would like to thank the players. It's been a great three years, I have enjoyed myself immensely. They have given me every drop, they have been wonderful for me."
The club released a short statement on their social media channels.
"Today, Niall Currie resigned as First Team Manager of Carrick Rangers FC. 
"Everyone at the Club would like to place on record our thanks to Niall for all of his hard work during his time in charge, and wish him well for the future."
