Curtis Woodhouse has announced on social media that he has stood down as manager of NCEL club Hull United.

The footballer-turned-boxer said on Twitter this afternoon: “I’ve today resigned as manager of Hull United. I would like to wish the club all the best in the future.”

Woodhouse led United to the East Riding Senior Cup final last May, where they were beaten 4-2 by Bridlington Town.

His side were fifth in Division One this season, but were hampered last week when the NCEL announced the club would have a further 12 points deducted, subject to an appeal, for fielding ineligible players.

In recent weeks, United have been forced to play all their matches away from home, and top scorer Brett Agnew left for Bridlington earlier this month.

The club has not yet released a statement confirming Woodhouse’s departure.
