Player-boss Robbie Mason’s five-year spell at Soham Town Rangers has come to an end. 

Mason parted company with the club tonight (Tuesday) after a 3-0 defeat to Wisbech Town on December 27 left Soham six points adrift from safety in the Northern Premier League Division One Midlands. 

In a statement, Soham chairman Mark Goldsack said “this was a very difficult decision for the club. 

“He is a man with great integrity and has the highest of work ethics. 

“However, under current circumstances we believe it is best to change managers.” 

Mr Goldsack added: “On behalf of everyone at the club and personally, I would like to thank Rob for his work as player and manager and wish him every success for the future.  

“He has played a part in the history of the club, and he will always be warmly welcomed back at Julius Martin Lane.” 

Soham will not be commenting any further until a new manager is appointed. 

Mason, who joined Soham in December 2016, saw assistant boss Erkan Okay leave the club for Stowmarket Town earlier this month
