Brady steps down as Lynn Stars boss

Alex Brady has announced his resignation as team manager of the King’s Lynn Stars.

Brady took to social media to tell fans the news – shortly after the club’s 47-43 defeat at Belle Vue on Monday night.

He told fans in a personal statement: “The dream is over.

“I called time on my journey with the King’s Lynn Stars on Thursday evening.

“The truth is I’d made my mind up a few weeks before but was convinced to carry on, which in hindsight was a mistake.

“Thank you to all the fans who supported me and the team, to all the sponsors, staff, riders and everyone connected to the club for their support and efforts.

“Life has changed a lot for me recently and I need to focus more on my beautiful children, and my other baby – selling houses.

“I wish nothing but the best for Buster (Chapman), Dale (Allitt) and all the boys going forwards, and I hope one day I can be back, when the time is right.”

Rumours were rife that Brady had quit over the weekend and speculation increased after former team boss Rob Lyon took over the running of team affairs in Manchester on Monday night.

With co-promoter Dale Allitt ill and club owner Keith Chapman away on holiday, Lynn were left with no other alternative than to bring Lyon in and a temporary basis, while Peterborough co-promoter Carl Johnson agreed to guide the Panthers at Wolverhampton in a meeting which was subsequently postponed due to a freak storm.

Brady is believed to have been the subject of some personal abuse on social media – a point he made in his statement.

He said: “Even thank you to those who like to DM constant, personal abuse – you know who you are.”

The King’s Lynn Stars revealed that they will be making no further comment at this stage but again placed on record their thanks to Lyon for standing in as team manager at Belle Vue.
