Worthing United have parted company with manager Matt Evans.
Evans had been in charge at the Macron Southern Combination Football League club for over five years.
The club released this statement:
Worthing United FC has taken the difficult decision to relieve First Team manager Matt Evans from his duties with immediate effect. We would like to take this opportunity to thank Matt for his hard work and dedication over the last four seasons as a manager at the club.
During his time in charge, ‘Mev’ has worked tirelessly to bring success to the club, but with relegation last season & one league win so far this season, we feel it is the right time to change. Matt is extremely well thought of at the club & is a very likeable character.
We are disappointed that things haven’t worked out. The club will now look to advertise for a replacement, and details will be announced in due course. Again, our sincere thanks, Matt.
