The New Saints are losing the service of coach Carl Darlington, who says he is leaving to "seek a new challenge".
He came to the club four seasons ago, to train both the players and the coaches and during that time the club has won 10 trophies and set a record this season for consecutive victories.
Chairman Mike Harris and Chief Operating Officer Ian Williams both wished him well for the future, with Harris saying he was "always welcome back at Park Hall".
This decision was extremely hard as everyone wants to be successful and consecutively win honours. This is exactly what I had at TNS that has been designed over many years. I know that leaving the club, I will always be part of this history and I’m very proud of my personal achievements at the club."

A reader got in touch with the Your Questions section of the BBC website to ask "what is the oldest public house in Shropshire?"
We asked Norrie Porter from the Campaign for Real Ale in Shropshire, and he says they believe the oldest pub in the county is The Royal Oak in Cardington (pictured below), which can trace its history back to the 15th Century.
Mr Porter said there are two pubs which dispute that claim, but The Three Horseshoes in Alveley has closed and while The Swan Inn in Aston Munslow claims to have opened in the 14th Century, English Heritage believes the building is 16th Century.
He said the pub in the oldest building is probably The Old Eagles in Whitchurch, which was built in the 14th Century, but it has only been a pub since 1868.
And he explained this is further confused because pubs were only really licensed after the 1751 Gin Act and before then any house could claim to be a beer house.
Firemen have used drills, hammers and chisels to break through a wall in Shrewsbury and rescue a trapped cat.
They think it slipped down into the three inch gap, between two houses on Longville Road, and it was stuck with its legs in the air.
It took over an hour to carefully cut it free and coax it out and it was taken to a vet for a check-up.

Shrewsbury Town has offered new deals to four players, but released four others.
As we revealed last week, Paul Hurst wants to keep the club's player of the year Mat Sadler and winger Shaun Whalley (pictured below).

Hurst has released long-serving number two keeper Mark Halstead, and three younger players Kaiman Anderson, Callum Grogan, and Ethan Jones.
Shropshire Council is considering a £7.5m revamp of its Shirehall offices in Shrewsbury.
The authority has published tender documents for work on its 50-year-old headquarters, which it says should extend its lifespan by the same period again.
The documents say the work is needed after years without investment in the building, but it comes at a time when the authority is trying to cut its budget by £77m by 2020/21.
Plans to sell off the site were dropped last year, after a change in the council's leadership.
A Shropshire couple have been killed in a crash while travelling in a taxi in Mauritus.
Hugh Vaughan (pictured below) and his wife Liz lived in Prees Heath, near Whitchurch and had been on holiday on the island.
The foreign office says it is supporting their family and remains in contact with the Mauritian police.

While the rest of the Shrewsbury Town squad prepare to head off on their summer holidays, defender Joe Riley will have to stay at home to recover from his broken ankle.
He suffered the injury in the final home game of the season and will be having an operation on it tomorrow.
Shrewsbury's physio Chris Skitt says it isn't a simple break, so Riley faces a long period of rehab.
I've made him come in, he's going to have to cancel a few holidays that he's got planned. Unfortunately that's the life of a footballer, he's going to have to cope with that and I'm sure he'll be able to get some time off during his rehabilitation, but for the short term, he'll need to be in getting treatment."

A military wife at RAF Shawbury is accusing the Ministry of Defence of letting down personnel who have Post Traumatic Stress Disorder or PTSD.

Mrs Dallison has called on the Ministry of Defence to make changes to provide more help for people with the condition, in a video posted on social media. It's been viewed more than a million times.

He was passed round nine different clinicians in the space of 12 months alone. I've had so many messages from hundreds of people who're going through the same thing, who've been through a similar thing. And some of them, unfortunately have actually lost their loved ones now because their loved ones could not cope with what they'd been through and the lack of help given to them."

AFC Telford United say they are disappointed with the take-up for shares, after putting them up for sale for a second time.

It has not yet revealed how many shares it was able to sell, or whether the shares would be put up for sale for a third time, but all applications for 50 shares or less will be approved.

Electric fences are being used in Shropshire to protect curlew nests from predators.
Their numbers have seen a sharp decline in the past decade and conservationists believe this is partly because they are being eaten.

The club said it agreed to this person's request for a non-disclosure agreement, but that was the end of the contact and that at this stage it has no evidence a consortium even exists.
