Chorlton had led the Grecians' board since December 2009 but was facing a vote of no-confidence from the Supporters' Trust, who own the Sky Bet League Two club.

A statement on the club's official website read: "Mr Chorlton wishes Exeter City AFC well in the future.

"He says the Club has a professional Board of Directors, an outstanding manager, a very talented young team, and a group of hard working staff.

"He thanks them for their support and friendship over the last four and a half years and wishes the club and its dedicated supporters a very successful 2014/15 season."

In May earlier this year, the cash-strapped Exeter decided to take a £100,000 loan from the PFA in order to pay their players after a fall in attendance and ticket sales.

This resulted in the Grecians being put under a transfer embargo until the debt is repaid.

think Liverpool should start trying alternative therapy now, given that Sturridge's hips and knees are apparently unfathomable to modern medicine. Voodoo, acupuncture, healing oils, rolling in the snow after a hot bath, its all got to be worth a go now.
