In a statement issued on the Blues’ website Gallagher said that he feels he has taken the club as far as he can as manager and assistant Dale Brooks has been placed in charge.

“Following discussions with the new chairman (Alan Green) I have decided that it’s time for me to step aside.

“I have had 18 wonderful years at the club, but a variety of challenging circumstances of the last few seasons has led me to believing that fresh impetus is needed to take the football side forward again.

“As a Lowestoft lad I’ve always tried to do my best for the club and I’m enormously proud of what has been achieved during my time here. The club and supporters have been so good to me and it’s been a wonderful experience that will live with me forever.

“I would like to thank all the great managers, coaches, players, staff, chairman and committee members that I have worked with over the years. I have shared some fantastic memories with you and the supporters and wish the club, Dale, the backroom staff and the lads every success in the future.”

Lowestoft thanked Gallagher for his time in charge and revealed they will be arranging “some kind of benefit” for him in the future months.

A further statement in regards to management will be released over the coming days.
