A statement on the club's official website confirmed that John Laird had parted company with Ton, citing family reasons and additional business interests.

It said: "We received an email from John Laird two weeks ago advising that, with regret, he had to tender his resignation with immediate effect from his position as Director of Youth due to increased business commitments coupled with family illness.

"We have been speaking to John over this two week period to see if there was some way that he could remain at the club while taking a temporary 'back seat'.

"Unfortunately, John felt that any kind of compromise would see him unable to give his usual 100 per cent commitment, and that this would not be fair on those involved with the youth teams."
