National League side FC Halifax Town have suffered a managerial casualty after boss Jamie Fullarton left the club today. The 44 year old had been in charge of the Shaymen since February 2018, but has resigned his position, with immediate effect.
The former Notts County boss guided Halifax to a 15th place finish in the National League during the 2018-19 season, as well as managing their transition from a part-time side into a fully professional outfit, with the 2008 reformed club attempting to restore itself back up to the level that the original Halifax Town AFC club achieved.
Halifax don't give a reason for his resignation but describe his finish last season as "a very commendable achievement", also acknowledging the club's transformation into a full-time set-up. Fullarton can at least console himself that his time in Yorkshire lasted considerably longer than his time with Notts County, with him being given just 70 days in charge at Meadow Lane between January and March 2016 - a run of just twelve games.
The Shaymen indicate that they plan to appoint a successor for Fullarton "within the coming days", suggesting that they don't intend to go into the 2019-20 season without a new man in place.
