“Mauricio and his coaching staff will always be part of our history. I have the utmost admiration for the manner in which he dealt with the difficult times away from a home ground whilst we built the new stadium and for the warmth and positivity he brought to us. I should like to thank him and his coaching staff for all they have contributed.
‘They will always be welcome here. We have a talented squad. We need to re-energise and look to deliver a positive season for our supporters.”
