Former Ascot United player Rob Saunders and Binfield manager Roger Herridge have led the tributes to Jeff Lamb and Paul McGrotty after the duo announced their resignations at the Racecourse Ground on Wednesday morning.

Saunders played under the pair at Ascot and tweeted: What is @grotty8 going to do on Satdees?! He and Jeff led the best side the club has ever seen and me to some of my best days in football.
