Gosport Borough have parted company with their management team of Craig McAllister and Matt Tubbs.

Chairman Iain McInnes explained the following on the club’s website:

It’s with mutual regret that at a meeting between Craig McAllister, Matt Tubbs and I last evening we agreed that after a disappointing season, and an inadequate level of confidence for the upcoming campaign, it was in all parties interest to bring our managerial agreement to a close.

Football of course is a team game and measured rightly by results but it’s at that point that the ‘team’ shrinks in squad size and culpability. Craig and Matt stepped in to take responsibility with the unfortunate and unavoidable departure of Ryan Northmore for personal reasons and for that I thank them wholeheartedly. It was a decision I’m solely accountable for and therefore I share with Macca and Tubbsy the appropriate responsibility.

Of course there’s disappointment and hurt from all parties at this juncture but without hollow platitudes that normally abound in these circumstances, if we can all look in the mirror and say ‘we did our best’ that’s as good a place as anywhere to sign off.

I look forward to following both Macca & Tubbsy’s future progress and I’m sure you would wish me to express your best wishes for the future.

My task now is to put the disappointment behind me and I owe it to you all to make the right decisions going forward.

Thank you for your support this season it was much appreciated by all here at GBFC.
