Terry White has resigned as manager of Hastings United.

White's departure was announced on the club's website tonight and follows Monday night’s 3-0 reverse against Tooting and Mitcham.

Hastings, who were fancied to mount a promotion push this term after missing out last season in the play-off semi-finals, are currently 18th in Ryman One south.

White took the role in January this year after the departure of John Maggs.

Former United boss Nigel Kane, White’s assistant, will take caretaker charge for Saturday’s FA Cup tie away to Grays Athletic.
