Lee Mills has stepped down from his role as joint manager of Ellesmere Rangers.

Family commitments have led to Mills relinquishing his role alongside Matt Burton at the helm of the Midland Alliance club.

The former Wolves, Bradford and Port Vale frontman spent last season at Bridgnorth before making the switch to Ellesmere in the close season.

"I've really enjoyed my time there but it's not fair to Ellesmere if I'm only available for one game in every four or five which could be the way it goes now," said Mills.

"I've enjoyed my time in manager and coaching over the last couple of seasons and hopefully in some capacity, I can get back into it at some point somewhere. It's just not realistic time wise at the moment."

Burton said: "I can't speak highly enough of Lee and I've asked him to keep me informed of his situation."

Burton has moved quickly to bring in a replacement, with former Wellington Amateurs manager Stuart Corns – now a player at Beech Grove – joining the management team.
