WOODCOTE/STOKE ROW manager Pete McAlister has stepped down from his post after 16 years in charge of the side.
McAllister saw his side slip to a final day 2-1 defeat away to champions Reading YMCA last Saturday.
The hosts took the lead before Frank Dillon equalised just before half-time. As the game entered stoppage time at the end of the second half Toby Nowell missed an good chance to hit a winner. In the fourth minute of injury time a misplaced back-pass by Andy Bullett allowed YMCA to score a last gasp winner.

McAlister who will be replaced by Ross Weatherstone, the former Oxford United professional and Woodcote stalwart and will be assisted by current players, Jim Hancock and Andy Bullett.
Elsewhere in the division ROTHERFIELD UNITED ended their campaign with a 1-1 draw away to COOKHAM DEAN.
The hosts took the lead before substitute Omar Cofie equalised 10 minutes from time. The draw left United in ninth place in the league.
