GANMAIN-Grong Grong-Matong coach Christin Macri has stepped down from the helm.
After being finals spectators for a few years, Macri guided the Lions to a preliminary final in 2018 and the elimination final last season.
They lost the preliminary final to Leeton-Whitton on the weekend.
The Lions aren't in a position to confirm who his replacement may be just yet.
But Macri said it was time for someone else to take on the challenge of leading the club to the top.
"Three years is probably all I can do. It's been a very exhausting season this year, even though it's only been short," Macri said.
"It's been really challenging with the to-ing and fro-ing of the whole pre-season (amidst COVID-19 uncertainty), and getting the players back up again.
"I've had two prelim finals and an elimination final, before that we hadn't played finals for a while and we wanted to turn the club around and get it back on track.
"I've got a family and the kids are growing up and busy with their sport. It's time to put some energy into that side of things.
"From a footy side of things I can step back as a supporter now and get more heavily involved in the junior side of things on a Sunday."

Macri said he doesn't envisage returning to senior coaching, at least for the foreseeable future.
The former Western Bulldogs player replaced Simon Bone as coach of Raiders at the end of 2002.
In his first season, Macri led the Raiders to their first minor premiership before exiting in straight sets.
