Bradbury joined Borough back in the summer and has left the club 16th place in the Conference South.

Shaun Gale will also relinquish first team duties with immediate effect.

Borough have confirmed that Gale will continue to lead the community projects that he has started to implement for the club.

Team affairs will be overseen by other coaches within the club, with popular skipper Sergio Torres expected to take on some of the management duties.

Meanwhile, Borough will be exploring options for a new manager over the coming days.

Bradbury said: "I would like to start by thanking everyone associated with Eastbourne Borough football club for the way they have treated me since day one of me joining this fantastic community club.

"I would like to put on record that I am disappointed that things didn’t come to fruition  but the clarity the club have shown me over recent weeks has been great and I really hope the club finds the investor it needs to get out of financial trouble and become successful as it has so much potential.

"I part company with a heavy heart but also know it’s best for both parties.

"All the best for the future, and  Come on you Sports!"
