In a media statement, the Saints confirmed Braeckmans would be standing down from the position at the end of the home and away season.
“Aaron agreed to take on the role for 2016 at a very difficult time during the off-season and the club wishes to publicly thank him for the outstanding efforts despite the huge challenges that have presented, not the least being a depleted playing list,” the statement read.
“With a young family and work commitments taking Aaron away from home for significant periods, he advises that he is not able to commit the time required for the role going forward, however he has expressed a keen desire to remain involved at some level in 2017 such is his keenness to see the club lift its standings.”
The club now has its “total focus” on attracting the “best possible candidates” to form its coaching structure for 2017 and beyond.
“After what we believe was a steady initial first four years in the highly-competitive CHFL, the last two years have been very disappointing for a club that has a very proud, successful history over its 48 years as a combined entity,” it read.
“There has already been a number of meetings of the club’s recruiting sub committee as we strategically plan our path to being a competitive force, with the 50-year celebration of the amalgamation of the Carngham and Linton football clubs in the 2018 season being a key medium-term focus.”
Braeckmans has been unable to land a win in his one and only season in charge, with the Saints on the bottom of the senior ladder after 13 rounds.
