The dental technician stepped down from his role at MacKessack Park after Saturday’s 8-0 league defeat at home to Fraserburgh.

It was the second home game running that the Speysiders had lost eight goals, having suffered an 8-1 North Cup loss to Elgin City in midweek.

In a statement on the club website, a spokesperson said: "It is with great regret that Rothes FC announce the resignation of our team manager Graeme Roy.

"We reluctantly accepted following the defeat to Fraserburgh on Saturday. Any applications for the job are invited to contact the club via rothesfc@highlandleague.com."

It is not yet known if Roy’s assistant manager Rab Mulheron is staying with the club, or has applied to be his successor.

Roy originally arrived at Rothes as previous boss Frani More’s number 2. When More quit in September last year, the former Buckie Thistle goalkeeper coach was appointed in his place.

"He is a well-liked, enthusiastic football man and we wish Graeme all the best for the future and he will always be welcome at Mackessack Park," said a club spokesperson.
