SAMMY Moore's tenure as Concord Rangers' player-manager has come to an end in sensational fashion.

Moore, who replaced Adam Flanagan in the hotseat last summer, has been asked to step down from his position by Beach Boys chairman Ant Smith.

But the club want Moore's backroom staff to stay at the Aspect Arena.

A club statement read: "Unfortunately, Sammy has been asked to step down as first team manager due to ongoing personal problems.

"We would like to take this opportunity to wish him all the best for the future.

"Jack Midson, Darren Beale, Danny Scopes and Adam Drew have been asked to remain at the club and we await their decisions.

"Further news will be released later this week."

Following Moore's appointment last year, the former Leatherhead player-manager completely rebuilt the Concord squad.

And Moore - along with assistant player-manager Midson and first team coach Beale, who followed the midfielder from Isthmian Premier League side Leatherhead - enjoyed a hugely successful campaign in charge.

The Beach Boys broke two club records after finishing the season with an all-time high 70 points and clinching sixth spot in the National League South.

However, Concord's hopes of winning promotion to the top flight of non-league football were shattered.

The National League notified Concord that they were unable to participate in the play-offs due to their Aspect Arena home not having the minimum requirement of 500 covered seats.
