Rolls only became Cambridge United chairman in January
George Rolls has resigned as chairman of Cambridge United following a board meeting on Wednesday.
Rolls told BBC Radio Cambridgeshire: "I can confirm I have resigned as chairman of Cambridge United Football Club with immediate effect.
"I have also resigned from the board of directors alongside Terry Baker."
Martin Ling left his post as manager on Tuesday after just nine days in charge at the Abbey Stadium citing irreconcilable differences with Rolls.
And Martin's predecessor, Gary Brabin, also quit last month after clashing with the board.
Majority shareholder Paul Barry has been elected interim chairman and is making plans to come to Cambridge from his base in the United States.
Rolls will now severe his connections with the club after admitting it had become increasingly difficult to maintain his position at the club.
He said: "I think every director you speak to will say I did a hell of a job as a director and also as chairman. But obviously at times I've got over-enthused in certain areas and that's proved to be the downfall.
"I don't think the club has seen the last of George Rolls though. I will be back, I will be back stronger next time when I'm back on the board in the future which I think will happen."
The U's now head in to Saturday's Blue Square Premier fixture against Barrow with player-assistant manager Paul Carden in charge of first-team affairs.
