Adam Lakeland has resigned from his role as Blackburn Rovers manager with immediate effect.
Reserve team manager Scott Rogers will take temporary charge for the final two games of the season.
The club would like to place on record its thanks to Adam for his hard work over the past four years, which has seen the team win the Lancashire County Cup on four occasions and establish themselves in the Premier League.
Adam admitted that he was sad to be leaving, but was proud of what he had achieved. "Firstly, I'd like to say thanks to (managing director) Tom Finn and (football secretary) Andrew Pincher for showing faith in me when they offered me the job back in December 2006," he said.
"I have enjoyed my time working for the club, both with the Ladies team and in previous roles, which spans the best part of 11 years.
"Blackburn Rovers has done a lot for me and I am proud of the way I have helped turn around the entire Ladies & Girls Department.
"I feel that the Ladies set up is now respected nationally as a very stable and well run club and I couldn't have done that without having worked with a lot of good players and staff.
"They have been loyal throughout and have made a lot of sacrifices for the benefit of the team and the club, and without them, both myself and the team wouldn't have achieved the things that we have.
"Finally, I am proud to leave the team in a much better position than when I took over and hopefully they can continue to build on the foundations we've put in place over the last five seasons."
Blackburn are at home to newly crowned Champions Sunderland in their penultimate fixture of the Premier League season at Radcliffe Borough this Sunday (kick off 2pm).
