Kings Langley have announced the departure of manager Steve Conroy following a disagreement over club finances.

The club missed out on the Evo-Stik League Southern Premier Division playoff places by just one point at the end of the recently-concluded season and the club have confirmed that Conroy will no longer be in charge next season.

In a statement on their website, the club said: "It is with regret that Kings Langley F. C. announce that Steve Conroy has vacated the post of 1st Team Manager with immediate effect.

"The Club rigourously persues [sic] a policy of self sustainability with regards to its income and expenditure and after long discussions at more than one meeting, the Directors were unable to agree that the club’s financial resources could support an enhanced playing budget as requested by the 1st Team Manager.

"Steve and his assistant Chris Winton were responsible for Kings Langley’s highest finish to date at Step 3 last season and the Club is indebted to both for helping to provide an extremely enjoyable campaign. As such, the Club wishes Steve and Chris every success in their future endevours [sic]."
