STEVE Titterton has left his role as Gresley assistant to take up the vacant manager's position at Stapenhill.
Titterton was part of Gary Norton's backroom team before becoming Martin Rowe's right-hand man this season.
He said: "I've left the club to take up the manager's position at Stapenhill.
"I've done so with very mixed feelings as I have loved my time at Gresley and made so many friends from the management to the supporters.
"I felt it was the right time to take the step to be manager at a club but feel sad at having to leave such a great club as Gresley.
"After three seasons as coach/assistant I felt I wanted to have a go at being a manager.
"Although I feel the timing is not perfect, I didn't want to miss this opportunity.
"I'd like to thank Martin Rowe for all his help and support not just over the past few days but for the time we've worked together at Gresley.
"I'd also like to thank Gary Norton who brought me to the club in the first place.
"His help and friendship has been fantastic and I hope it continues.
"The support and guidance of the chairman Barry North has been much appreciated by me and I'd like to thank him for his support while I've been at the club."
Richard Butler will step up to the assistant manager’s role, with Wayne Thornhill as first-team coach.
