Blackburn Rovers has announced that it has reached agreement with Academy Manager Phil Cannon to leave the club after five years.
The club expresses its best wishes to Mr Cannon for the future.
Cannon, who joined Rovers in 2009 after periods in youth development at Derby County, Everton and Swindon Town, said: “It is time for me to move on for a fresh challenge.
“I would like to thank all the staff for their hard work and commitment over the last five years, during which time the Academy achieved Category 1 status, a great achievement by all concerned.
“I would also like to thank the owners for their support in providing the necessary finance and infrastructure.
“Finally I wish Blackburn Rovers all the very best for the future.”
