Bishop Stortford Citizen - Drectors pay tribute to Cunningham
DIRECTORS at Harlow Town Football Club have paid tribute to Tommy Cunningham, who took the decision to resign as the club's Director of Football last week.
Cunningham, who joined the Hawks in July 2003 as first team manager, came to the decision for personal reasons, and will now concentrate on his sports management work.
Vice-Chairman Simon Morgan said: "Obviously I'm very disappointed that Tommy has come to this decision, but he believes that this is the right thing to do at this time.
"Tommy's help and support has been invaluable to the club, and we wish him every success in the future.
"I'm pleased that he will still be there to speak to if we need any more advice or help in the months to come."
Cunningham took charge of his first game at Harlow on August 16, 2003 at home to Waltham Forest in division one east of the Southern League.
The former Chelsea and QPR defender moved upstairs to director level at the club in November 2006, when he passed on the first team manager's reigns to Ryan Kirby.
It has been through Cunningham's connections that Harlow have been able to lay their hands on several talented young prospects in the game, including the recent work experience signings from Southend United and Leyton Orient.
During his tenure as Director of Football, Cunningham saw the Hawks gain propmotion to the Ryman Premeir Division for the first time in 23 years.
His resignation takes immediate effect, with Ryan Kirby now tasked with overseeing all footballing matters.
Other administrative tasks previously carried out by Cunningham have been undertaken by Morgan.
"It is important to realise that Tommy's decision will not have a detrimental effect on the playing staff at the club," Morgan pointed out.
"We are more than happy with the direction Tommy has taken Harlow Town in, and we will look to build on this in the future." Bishops Stortford Citizen
