Exmouth Town are set for further managerial changes following the announcement that former Exeter City star Kevin Miller is to step down from his role as joint manager with immediate effect, writes John Dibsdall.

Miller, who also played league football for Birmingham City, Watford, Crystal Palace, Torquay United, Barnsley and Bristol Rovers, arrived at Southern Road at the end of September to replace Peter Buckingham, who had taken on the role of Town boss at the start of the season following the departure of Richard Pears to take the hot seat at Barnstaple Town.

Andy Rawlings will continue as manager in sole charge of first team affairs whilst the club look to appoint the right person to assist Andy in his role.

On the pitch, last Saturday saw Town suffer another complete washout with the first team fixture at home to Godolphin Atlantic and the reserves match at Feniton postponed due to waterlogged pitches.

It is now seven weeks since Town last played, their longest spell of inactivity since joining the South West Peninsula League in 2007.

In the 2015/16 season they went six weeks without a game, losing to Helston 3-2 on the 12 December and then 2-1 to Callington on January23.

This Saturday (January 27), Town are again at home with Camelford the visitors. When the sides met earlier in the season Town scored in the first minute with a goal from Ace High before eventually losing 2-1.

Whilst they are languishing in the lower reaches of the table they remain the only side to take points off Plymouth Parkway, winning 1-0 at home.

The reserves travel to Newtown who are currently second in the Devon and Exeter League Premier Division table.
