Loughborough Dynamo skipper Chris Gray is holding the fort at the Nanpantan Sports Ground as the hunt starts to appoint a successor to Wayne Hallcro.
The experienced midfielder, who counts Stamford and Quorn among his former clubs, agreed to take charge of the EVO-STIK NPL First Division South strugglers a few hours after the departure of Hallcro on Wednesday.
Former Grantham Town and Belper Town boss Hallcro left by “mutual consent” following his second from bottom side’s 2-1 defeat at Kidsgrove Athletic on Saturday, their seventh in a row and 15th in their last 16 league games.
After becoming the sixth occupant of Dynamo’s dugout last season in March, Hallcro steered Dynamo to safety after a relegation battle.
Dynamo thanked Hallcro for his efforts in a statement on their website setting a deadline of Monday 19 December for potential successors to apply for the newly vacant post.
The club statement read: “Wayne Hallcro has left his post as manager of Loughborough Dynamo by mutual consent. Wayne joined Dynamo late last season and steered Dynamo to safety after a relegation battle. The directors of Loughborough Dynamo wish to thank Wayne for all his work for the club and send him all good wishes for the future.”
