New Zealand Knights manager John Adshead has resigned from the club.

Adshead, 64, says that the club - which won just one A-League game last season - is in good hands following the recent appointment of former Fulham reserve and academy coach Paul Nevin as head coach.

"In all situations there is always a right time to retire from football, the key is recognising that time," Adshead said.

"After considering all relevant factors to me, the club and my family my time is now."

"I leave knowing that the rebuilding process is well underway and that the affairs of the team are in excellent hands with Paul Nevin. I wish everyone at the club a successful future."

Nevin has been appointed caretaker manager while the club seeks a replacement for Adshead.
