Scott Johnson has stepped down as joint-manager of Wisbech Town Football Club.

The 36 year-old defender, who had been joint boss with Paul Cousins since September, will concentrate on his playing career with the club.

Former boss Dick Creasey, who has helped out at the club since Steve Appleby’s departure at the beginning of the season, will take Johnson’s place alongside Cousins in the dugout.

Creasey said: “I’m looking forward to working closely with Paul and helping him to develop as a manager.

“It’s hard to play and manage and he can now concentrate on playing when he needs to.”

The duo’s first game in charge will be the trip to Desborough Town in the United Counties League tomorrow.
