Watson's fourteen month run as Rangers boss ends

16th December, 2018

Winterton Rangers have announced that manager Rob Watson has been sacked after fourteen months in charge at West Street.

The Toolstation NCEL Division One side topped the table this season for almost three months but four games without a win has seen them since drop to sixth spot whilst they also recently bowed out of the Buildbase FA Vase and Lincolnshire Senior Trophy.

Watson had been in charge since October 2017 when he took over the reins from Paul Grimes who stepped down to concentrate on playing.

Rangers CEO, Richard Smales, said: "We would all like to thank Rob for his efforts during his tenure as first team manager, firstly stepping up to the position at the back end of last season, taking the club on an excellent run during the first half of this season and of course the recent FA Vase exploits.

"However, it has been a disappointing last few weeks which has seen us exit all cup competitions and lose top spot in the league.

"Results havenít been what the club nor football board expect and ultimately a decision has been made with the view that we can keep on track with the aims and ambitions set out at the start of this season."

The club say they will make a further update in the coming days on the position.
