STUART BUSFIELD has confirmed he has left Cornwall/Devon League side Tamar Saracens.
Busfield took over the coaching at Saracens two-and-a-half years ago and during that time he has guided the Ernesettle-based club to two successive promotions.
However, he says he has now decided the time is right to move on and ‘look for a new challenge’.
Saracens, who won the Devon One title in April, have struggled with availability problems this season and currently sit second-from-bottom in the Cornwall/Devon League, albeit it having played a game less than their rivals.
“I just think it is right for me and the club.
“We’ve had a very successful couple of years and I have really enjoyed my time at Tamar Saracens.
“I would like to thank the club and the players. There’s a great bunch of guys down there and I do wish them every success for the rest of the season.
“If they get their act together and train together then I’m sure they can stay up. It is an excellent club.”
Busfield insisted he was not leaving with ‘any bad feelings’ and that he has been talking to the club about it for a number of weeks and has suggested some possible replacements.
He says he has been asked to do a few ‘bits and bobs’ within the Plymouth rugby community, but at the moment says he wants to have a short break to refresh himself.
Tamar Saracens are in action at Bodmin this weekend.
