Ling resigns as Cambridge manager

Ling became Cambridge manager just nine days ago

Cambridge United manager Martin Ling has resigned from his position after only nine days in the job.

The club have cited "irreconcilable differences between Martin Ling and chairman George Rolls" as the reason.

A club statement said: "The club has reluctantly accepted his resignation. It has been agreed that neither party will make any further statement."

Ling replaced Gary Brabin, who left following a deterioration of his relationship with the board on 13 July.

It is believed the Cambridge players were informed on Tuesday morning of Ling's resignation.


Ling, who signed a three-year deal with Cambridge, should have led the team in their opening Blue Square Premier match of the season against Barrow on Saturday.

He previously spent more than five years in charge of Leyton Orient, helping them to promotion from League Two to League One.
