Gosport Borough chairman Iain McInnes has expressed disappointment in the way his recently-appointed boss, Ryan Northmore, has been forced to quit the club.

Northmore, who was named manager only last month, has quit Privett Park for personal reasons. After getting married during the summer, he has found it impossible to get a visa for his Colombian-born wife to join him in the UK.

It left him with an almost impossible choice – and in the end, not surprisingly, he put his family first. McInnes had some sympathy with Northmore but at the same time admitted it leaves the club in a difficult situation.

“As a chairman I wanted to wring his neck but as a fellow human being you have to feel for him,’ said McInnes. “It is a big blow at this stage of pre-season.

“I felt Gosport needed a football architect, someone who could help rebuild the club from the ground up.”
