Iain McInnes insists he didn’t make a mistake reappointing Alex Pike as Gosport Borough manager.

Pike’s second reign as boss ended earlier today when he was sacked – after failing to pick up a win in his 14 games in charge since returning in December. He was axed by Borough in September when interim chairman Iain Sellstrom was in charge.

McInnes admitted things were not working out as he envisaged – having originally hoped Pike would be joint-boss alongside Mick Catlin.

The Gosport chairman said: “I don’t believe appointing Alex was a mistake because he was supposed to be part of a partnership with Mick Catlin. We thought we had an agreement for that to happen.

“Then Mick changed his mind, leaving Alex in charge on his own. It hasn’t worked as it may have done.

“Alex and I agreed to take some time out over the deliberations on his continuation in the role of manager. He did have some family issues that needed his personal attention.”
