Morpeth start search for new manager

Turnbull offered his resignation to chairman Ken Beattie following the 2-1 defeat to Witton on Saturday.

Beattie said: “I’ve got the greatest respect and regard for Stephen and he has been extremely unlucky with a number of factors including Covid-related disruption.

“He has been a tremendous player and ambassador for Morpeth Town. He has high standards and will continue to do well going forward.”
