Stafford Rangers were today searching for a new manager following the sacking of Greg Clowes.
Clowes was dismissed yesterday morning after 27 months in charge, with Rangers bottom of the Evo-Stik Northern League Premier, having lost their opening seven games.
Assistant boss Dorrian Garner and coach Mick Hathaway were also given their marching orders.
A statement from the club’s board said they would first be looking to appoint a caretaker manager to take charge of tomorrow’s home game with Marine and Saturday’s trip to Chasetown in the FA Cup.
The decision comes after Rangers slipped to a 3-0 defeat away at Chorley on Saturday.
The statement read: “Following a board meeting held this morning, the club can confirm a decision has been made to relieve Greg Clowes, Dorrian Garner and Mick Hathaway of their management duties.
“The board would like to thank Greg, Dorrian and Mick for their hard work and commitment over the last two and half years, and wish them well for the future.
“The board will naturally be looking for a suitable permanent replacement.”
