Colin Phillips has stepped down as manager of Whitley Bay and is leaving the club.
He formed the club in 2005 and has guided them to League titles, League Cup and County Cup wins,
Whitley Bay chairman Paul McIlduff praised Phillips' achievements, saying: "Colin started the women's section from nothing and in the last five years has put seven trophies in our cabinet and has an amazing win percentage of over 80%.
"Off the pitch he has put in place the structure of a Registered Charity and the section is financially sound, with sponsorship in place, and is well equipped. He will be a tough act to follow."
Colin Phillips said: "I have had a fantastic five years forming and developing the Club and leave a great set up and a squad I think is well capable of challenging for promotion again this season and I wish them the best of luck."
He has no plans to be involved with another club but added: "I will take a short break, but knowing me, it won't be too long before I will want to be involved in football again in some capacity."
On Sunday, Phillips' last duties with the Club saw Whitley go top of the North East League in a 5-1 win against Guiseley with two goals from Laura Darmody and one each from Janine Fagan, Steph O'Brien and Rachel Kay.
First team coach Andy Windscheffel will now be in charge of team affairs until further notice.
