HELLENIC LEAGUE: Gill departs Shrivvy after 11 games at helm
LES Gill has this afternoon left Shrivenham by mutual consent after just 11 games in charge.
The former Sanford boss won one game during his two-month tenure, with his final match at the helm being a 10-1 thrashing by arch-rivals Highworth on Boxing Day.
Reserve team boss and club stalwart Mark Stevens has agreed to take up the reins and he has become the club's third manager of the campaign following the departures of Gill and predecessor Michael McNally.
Shrivvy are currently rock-bottom of the Hellenic Premier and nine points from guaranteed safety, and only an impressive recovery will see them to avoid relegation to Division One West.
Club chairman Neil Sutton said: “We had a meeting with Les this afternoon and he has left the club by mutual consent.
“I don't want to go into too much detail but both parties felt it was best for the club if we parted company.
“I think he just thought he couldn't take it any further and player commitment played a part in it.
“I'd like to thank Les for all he has done.
“We need to try and get some stability back now and we will review (the managerial position) at the end of the season.”
