Nuneaton Town stalwart Mark Noon has left Boro after over 10 years at the Conference club.

The 31-year-old ex-Boro midfielder has parted company with the club following new boss Liam Daish's appointment as Nuneaton's manager on Monday.

Noon, who was named number two to former Boro boss Kevin Wilkin in December 2013, has twice served as caretaker during the last year.

He first took over for five matches when Wilkin left for Wrexham in March.

Boro's bosses
Kevin Wilkin: June 2006-March 2014
Mark Noon (caretaker): March-April 2014
Brian Reid: April-September 2014
Mark Noon/Nicky Eaden/James Ellis (caretaker): September 2014
Liam Daish: September 2014

And he was again appointed to pick the team when Brian Reid was sacked seven matches into the new season.

But Daish's arrival means a further change of personnel behind the scenes at Liberty Way.

"We had discussions and I think it's time for me to move on," said Noon. "That's the decision that's been made. I've taken that decision. I've had 11 amazing years here. I'll always have a massive affinity to the club."

Although Noon spent most of his time at Nuneaton under Wilkin, he was signed by then Boro boss Roger Ashby in the summer of 2004.

The former Coventry City trainee, who had also played for Tamworth, helped Boro to promotion from the Southern League to the Conference Premier in 2012.

Going into this Saturday's home game with fellow strugglers Dartford, Boro are in the Conference relegation zone, in 22nd, five points clear of winless bottom club AFC Telford United.
