Norwich chairman Roger Munby and chief executive Neil Doncaster have resigned from their posts at Carrow Road.

The Canaries were relegated from the Championship to League One on the final day of the season.

In a joint statement they said: "It is clear that for Norwich City Football Club to move forward, there needs to be a fresh start.

"We therefore believe it is in the best interests of the club for us to step down from our positions."

Munby was the longest-serving member of the Norwich board, having returned to Carrow Road in 1996.

Joint-majority shareholders Delia Smith and Michael Wynn-Jones, along with Michael Foulger remain as directors of the Canaries.

In a statement on the club's website, the remaining board members said: "We want to thank Roger and Neil for their hard work and commitment to the club.

"There will be further changes to the board. An announcement about the executive management structure at the club will be made in the near future."

Munby and Doncaster added: "Delia, Michael and the Foulger family have worked tirelessly for the supporters.

"They have put huge amounts of their own money into the club over the last 13 years.

"They, and City supporters everywhere, deserve much more success than has been possible in recent years."
