Matlock Town have sacked manager Steve Kittrick.
The former Scarborough Athletic boss was appointed by the Gladiators back in May 2019, but after a promising start to the current campaign, the Derbyshire side have been on the slide in more recent times. With 12 points from their last 18 games in the BetVictor Northern Premier League’s Premier Division, Matlock are currently 19th of the 22 teams.
Chairman Tom Wright said: “We can’t hide from the fact that our league results have been poor for some time now, and given the funds we have put into the playing squad this season, we should be in a far better position in the table. While we’ve done well in the cups, the league is our bread and butter, and we need to start picking points up as soon as possible to get us out of the position we find ourselves in.
“I have to say that Steve has been a pleasure to work with, and we thank Steve and his staff for their hard work and wish them all the very best in their future careers.”
Wright confirmed that Matlock hope to have Kittrick’s replacement appointed before Saturday’s trip to Mickleover Sports.
