Aldershot have confirmed that manager Gary Waddock has left the League Two club to take the vacant managerial position at Wycombe.

The 47-year-old is expected to be unveiled by League One strugglers on Wednesday following Peter Taylor's departure from Adams Park last week.

Waddock was appointed as Shots manager in 2007 and in his first season in charge led them into Football League. He retained their status last season and leaves the club sixth in League Two, four points off leaders Bournemouth.

Waddock, who will take Martin Kruhl with him to Wycombe, admits he is leaving with a heavy heart.

"This has been the hardest decision I have ever had to make. I have had a fantastic time at Aldershot. The players and the backroom staff have played such a massive part in the success that we have had," he said.

"I wish to thank the supporters too for their wonderful following during my time at Aldershot. They were first class throughout and the relationship I had was first class.

"I wish the club every success in the future. I like challenges though and am extremely ambitious. I now have a new challenge ahead."

An Aldershot club statement read: "(We have had) long-term discussions over the last few days with the management team in the hope that we could find a way to retain their services and this included the offer of significantly improved long-term contracts.

"Unfortunately both Gary and Martin, after considerable deliberation, have jointly decided to take up the challenge of League One football with Wycombe Wanderers.

"The club would like to thank both Gary and Martin for their services to the club and for the success and achievements that we have had under their stewardship."
