Watford assistant manager Keith Burkinshaw has parted company with the club for family reasons.
Burkinhaw has been with Watford since March 2005
The ex-Tottenham boss opted to leave in order to spend more time at home following a serious family illness.
Burkinshaw was appointed as Watford's assistant boss in March 2005 at the same time that Aidy Boothroyd was unveiled as the club's manager.
"It's a sad day for me that Keith has been forced to leave my side," Boothroyd told the club website.
"He has been, and will remain a dear and close friend, will always be welcomed back at Watford."
