Hartley Wintney FC and First Team Manager, Rowan Vine, have mutually agreed to part company.
Vine, who first took charge of the Row in January, has been unable to take his place in the dugout this season after being charged by the FA in relation to an incident in a pre-season friendly.
The former Portsmouth, Birmingham City and Queens Park Rangers striker has pleaded not guilty to the charge. Club Chairman, Luke Mullen, said, "The incident, and Rowan's subsequent enforced absence, has affected Hartley Wintney FC as a club, resulting in our reluctantly having to make the very difficult decision. We are not making any judgement here, but the timescale involved in resolving this matter has left us no alternative."
Hartley Wintney FC would like to thank Rowan for all his efforts on behalf of the Club and wish him all the best in his future pursuits.
