Ashby and Smith sacked by Margate

Non League

Margate have parted company with manager Barry Ashby and player-coach Paul Smith, reports BBC Radio Kent.

The club say the decision was reached over the weekend after Ashby refused to implement personnel changes.

Ashby is understood to be deeply disappointed but determined to stand by his principals.

Director of football, Terry Yorath has been put in temporary charge of the Gate, who are 18th in the Ryman Premier and face another winding up order.

The financially-troubled club have had their case - brought by HM Revenue and Customs - adjourned until 26 November.

Former Gillingham players Ashby and Smith arrived at Hartsdown Park in May for what was their first managerial job.
