Wilkinson and Moore leave County

Howard Wilkinson has resigned his position as technical director of Notts County - hours after chairman Jeff Moore announced his own departure.

Wilkinson managed the Magpies in 1982/83 before spells with Sheffield Wednesday, Leeds and Sunderland, and a stint as the FA's technical director.

He returned as a non-executive director of County in 2004, becoming technical director in June 2006.

But the club announced on Monday afternoon that he had resigned.

Fellow director Joanna Adams - former commercial director of the Football Conference who had been on the Notts board since June - submitted her notice of resignation at the same time as Wilkinson.

The duo's resignations came on the same day that Moore revealed that he would relinquish the chairmanship once the shareholders and board had elected his successor.

"When I was first approached to become chairman at the end of the 2005-06 season, I was surprised and flattered," Moore told County's website.

I no longer feel it is fair to Notts County to continue as chairman while being unable to afford the requisite amount of time

"But my position as chief executive of the East Midlands Development Agency (EMDA) is a full-time role.

"I no longer feel it is fair to Notts County to continue as chairman while being unable to afford the requisite amount of time."

County have also launched a five-year business plan entitled "Vision 2012", in which the club is aiming to reach the Championship within five years.
