David quits as Santa Rosa coach.

FC San­ta Rosa has lost its coach, Shur­land David, even be­fore the 2019 sea­son could have been start­ed.

Guardian Me­dia Sports learnt David, a for­mer na­tion­al de­fend­er de­cid­ed to part ways with the club be­cause of dif­fer­ences with club pres­i­dent Kei­th Look Loy.

And David con­firmed yes­ter­day that there were dif­fer­ences be­tween him and Look Loy, in his method of coach­ing, so he de­cid­ed to call it a day. David whose coach­ing ca­reer be­gan as an as­sis­tant to Jer­ry Moe at Cale­do­nia AIA and in­clud­ed stints at North East Stars as an as­sis­tant coach and head coach at WASA FC and a Mal­oney de­vel­op­ment team up to re­cent, did not want to say too much more.

He was ap­point­ed more than four months ago and un­veiled to the pub­lic via the me­dia. Then, David had said he in­tend­ed to main­tain the win­ning cul­ture which the Ari­ma club had been known for over the years. The team is now be­ing coached by Look Loy. It is un­der­stood a search for a new coach is un­der­way. San­ta Rosa, known pop­u­lar­ly as the 'Big Can­nons' are in the fifth po­si­tion on the As­cen­sion In­vi­ta­tion­al League stand­ing on four points from a win, loss and draw.

The Ari­ma based Big Can­nons will next face Club San­do FC to­day at the Man­nie Ramjohn Train­ing Field from 4 pm.
