Ryan Northmore has told of his anguish after being forced to quit as Gosport Borough manager without a ball being kicked.

The 37-year old was appointed by Iain McInnes just more than a month ago after coaching at Saif Sports Club in the Bangladesh Premier League. The chairman replaced Rowan Vine and Louis Bell in the Privett Park hotseat.

The duo led Gosport’s great escape from the Southern League premier division in a caretaker capacity last term. Northmore was excited by the challenge at Borough. However, personal circumstances make it impossible for him to carry on.

Northmore told The News: “Saying that I am gutted doesn’t even come close.

“I have been put in an impossible situation of having to choose between family or football. Last month I got married to Colleen, a nurse, who I met in Bangladesh.

“Colleen is Colombian and we wanted to return to Britain but it has proved impossible to get her a visa.”
