Think you've gone for a tabloid type headline there Tony. Maybe there's a health issue? Him or in the family? Says he'll be back come July, so it's only temporary. Best of luck to him in his brief rest from the game.
According to the Sutton forum, Ian Baird has a touchline ban for a couple of matches just about to start....
'Don't expect to see Ian "conducting from the touchline" immediately. After giving the 4th official at Maidenhead an accurate assessment of Mr Allison's talent for refereeing, Ian will have a game or two watching from higher up'.
A referee who's also attracted comment at the Silverlake occasionally.....
Also best wishes to Dos during his break. I gather he would attend the play-off final is Sutton reach it....

Interesting that he starts to take a break after finally ending a bad sequence of results. Interesting to note that Sutton are still ninth and theoretically at least are still very much in the playoff race. Only the top six have lost fewer league games than they have.

It seems that both Paul Doswell's parents are unwell, he has a young family and has business issues to contend with. I think that whatever happens in the future and I would not like to predict this Paul has done very well since leaving Eastleigh to join Sutton in 2008.
"We are sorry to announce that Paul Doswell has tendered his resignation after eleven years as Sutton United manager with immediate effect. Paul had decided to take a break from the role a month ago, intending to return for next season, but he has now decided that he is unable to continue due to the time and distance that is involved in travelling from his home in Winchester, and has made his decision permanent. The players were informed after today’s game against Maidstone, and Ian Baird, Micky Stephens and Matt Gray will continue to take charge of the team for Saturday’s last game of the season at Dover."
Paul Doswell has vast experience, knows EFC very well, has excellent contacts and is not poor, so if we could bring him on board in some capacity, it could be a good move. I am however not convinced him returning as manager would be a good move. A lot of water has gone under the bridge since he left.
