Glen Driver has announced that he has quit as manager of Braintree Town.

Driver, who only took the helm at Cressing Road in June, made the announcement on his personal Twitter account on Thursday morning.

In his post he said: "It is with a heavy heart that I have today decided to resign from my position at manger of Braintree Town Football Club with immediat effect.

"I would like to thank Mr Lee Harding (chairman) for the opportunity he gave me to manage a club at step 2.

"I would also like to say thank you to the players for there (sic) support and efforts since the day I took over.

"I leave the club just two points outside the play-offs and with a squad that has proven it can compete at this level.

"I wish the club all the very best for the rest of the season."

Braintree's last outing under Driver's managerial tenure was a disappointing 3-0 defeat by bottom club Hungerford and they have only taken one point from their last four games, when they have conceded 12 goals.

However, the team are still sat ninth in the Vanarama National League South table ahead of a trip to fourth-placed Hemel Hempstead on Saturday.
