Steve steps down at the Oaktree
The Cases Somerset Rebels team manager Steve Bishop has decided to step down from his post.
THE Cases Somerset Rebels team manager Steve Bishop has advised the club that he wishes to take a step back from his managerial duties due to increasing work and family commitments;
“This has not been an easy decision for me to make,” he said, “and I have thought long and hard about it, but increasing work and home commitments have meant that I cannot really devote the time necessary to the role.”
“I work as a one of the greenkeepers at a local golf course, which involves an early start to my working day, but on many occasions I wasn’t getting home from midweek away matches until two or three in the morning, meaning that I was only getting a few hours sleep before having to get up again to get ready for work.”
On receiving the news, both Debbie Hancock and Garry May, were full of praise for Bishop, who will always hold a special place in Rebel history as he was the first-ever race winner for the club after they were formed in 2000.
