Ben Harvey has tendered his resignation from the post of
Director of Rugby at Jersey RFC with immediate effect.
Harvey, who was appointed in April 2008, met with club
officials yesterday (Wednesday) and informed them of his intention;
his resignation was reluctantly accepted.
"I have spent two days away from the Island considering my
position and I asked for a meeting to be held on my return," Harvey
said. "In this meeting, I said that I had decided that in order to
progress my career I needed to part company with the club, and was
therefore resigning with immediate effect."
Chairman Bill Dempsey said: "We are sorry that Ben has come to
this decision. His hard work, effort and enthusiasm has been
instrumental in enabling Jersey RFC to rise rapidly through the
leagues to the level at which we now play. We would like to thank
him for what he's done and wish him well in the future."
Dempsey said the Club's priority was that the players and
coaching staff focused on this weekend's British & Irish Cup
tie against Cornish Pirates. He said that Forwards Coach Steve
Boden would take interim charge of the club's playing affairs, and
added that the club would be making no further comment ahead of the
game on Saturday.
