Riche took the position at Victory Park in the summer of 2017 as the operational leader of non-footballing activities at the club.

The former AFC Fylde and Fleetwood Town employee was forced to apologise last month after being caught in a social media storm

He shared a photo 'fat-shaming' two sisters, who were snapped from behind in Blackpool and posted it on Instagram.

The post said: “Blackpool on bank holiday Sunday! #nowordstodescribe.”

Riche was reprimanded by the club's board of directors, but remained in position.

Chairman Ken Wright added: “After being part of our team, we’ll definitely miss him, but at the same time we look forward to the season ahead with our staff behind the scenes. It’s been a real pleasure working with Dave and we wish him every success moving forward.”

On leaving Victory Park he said: "I'd like to thank Ken, Graham (Watkinson) and the board for giving me this opportunity and I wish them all the best for the future."
