Taylor leaves struggling Boston

Taylor was only appointed to the Boston job last year

Boston United manager Tommy Taylor has left the club by mutual consent, with the club in the Unibond Premier Division relegation zone.

The Pilgrims have lost five of their last six league games.

Pilgrims chairman David Newton said: "We are still committed to promotion this season, so it was felt that we had to act sooner rather than later."

Director of youth Steve Welsh has taken temporary charge of the team while a new manager is found.

Taylor took over at the start of last season and led the club to 10th in Blue Square North before they were demoted for breaching insolvency rules.

Newton paid tribute to the former Darlington boss's time at the club.

He said: "Tommy is a hard-working manager, who was always willing to be involved in the fundraising and community aspects of the club.

"However, results on the pitch have not gone as expected this season, and we currently languish in the relegation zone of the Unibond Premier Division, albeit with a number of games in hand.

"Everyone at the club is working hard to turn around the finances of the club, and there was a danger that the poor results on the pitch would undermine that work.

"It has been a pleasure working alongside Tommy who is a true gentleman. I thank him for his undoubted efforts at the club."
