Mick Taylor quit as Bamber Bridge boss after deciding something needed to change if the club was to avoid relegation this season, the Lancashire Post report.

Brig are in danger of dropping out of the NPL Premier Division – they are just one place above the drop zone with five games of the season to go. After a torrid run of 12 games without a win in all competitions – and a run of seven successive defeats – Taylor felt he had little alternative but to hand in his resignation

He has been replaced by player-coach and captain Matt Lawlor and first-team coach Joey Allen on a caretaker basis.

They took charge of the team for last weekend’s trip to Basford United, which ended in a 1-0 defeat.

Lawlor revealed that Taylor’s decision to quit was a tough one to take for everybody connected with the club.

“After a run of 12 games without a win, Mick came to the decision himself on Thursday night that he wanted to step down,” he said.

“He felt that something needed to change and that change was himself. We as his coaching team did not agree but he made the decision for himself and his family.”
