Stamford AFC have sacked manager Andrew Wilson after just 10 matches in charge.

Wilson was dismissed following a Daniels’ board meeting last night (November 2).

Stamford won just one game and lost seven under Wilson who had replaced David Staff at the end of September. Stamford suffered a fourth straight defeat when bowing out of the FA Trophy at the first hurdle to lower-level Carlton last Saturday (October 31). The Daniels are currently next-to-bottom of the Northern Premier League.

Daniels chairman Bob Feetham said: “The directors felt that, with results failing to make progress, we urgently needed to make a change. Four successive defeats, including the nature of that 2-1 Trophy loss at Carlton Town, started alarm bells ringing.

“This is far from a knee jerk re-action. Northern Premier League survival is of paramount importance and we will now seek someone to quickly scour the market and bring in quality signings who can make a real difference at this level.

“However, we thank Andrew for the energy and commitment he brought to the task and wish him well in the future.”

Applicants for the position of Stamford AFC first team manager are urged to apply by email before noon on Sunday (November 8) to Phil.bee1947@hotmail.co.uk with relevant cv. Management experience, particularly at Northern Premier League level, would be welcome.

Stamford host Nantwich in the Northern Premier League this Saturday (November 7). The Daniels haven’t won a home game in eight attempts this season, picking up just three points.
