DANNY Scopes has resigned as manager of Concord Rangers.

Scopes led the Beach Boys out at Wembley in last week's FA Trophy final against Harrogate Town.

But Scopes has opted to depart the Aspect Arena just a day after Ant Smith announced he would be stepping down as chairman.

A club statement confirmed: "Danny Scopes has resigned from his position as first team manager.

"We would like to wish Danny well for his future and thank him for his contributions to our football club during his tenure which included our memorable FA Trophy final appearance at the home of football."
