Non-league club gets third manager in a WEEK after sacking boss less than seven hours after appointing him | The Sun

NON-LEAGUE club Yaxley have their third manager in a week after sacking one boss after SEVEN hours.

The Northern Premier League side are rooted to the bottom of the Midlands Division with zero wins in 24 games.

Yaxley have only drawn one match and have conceded 79 goals, with former manager Andy Furnell resigning due to personal reasons at the beginning of the week.

Chairman Malcolm Clements appointed Seb Hayes and revealed he was looking forward to working with the new manager – only to sack him seven hours later.

Hayes, who has worked with the club before, took to Twitter to share his shock at the decision.

He wrote: “I’m embarrassed writing this! Less than seven hours after giving me the job the chairman rang me and sacked me.

“One point on the board, 20 points from safety, losing 20 games on the bounce, but he says I wanted to make too many changes to the playing squad!”

The club has now appointed 20-year-old Sammy Mould, who became England’s youngest manager.

Former boss Furnell is now acting as an advisor and revealed Hayes was sacked because he wanted to make too many changes to the playing personnel.

Furnell said: “The club met with Seb on Monday night and spelled out our policy going forward which he accepted.

“We have some good players at the club, but could do with one or two extra ones. We didn’t want to make wholesale changes and Seb agreed.

“But the next day he presented us with a list of seven or eight players he wanted to sign and to be honest some of them would struggle at the level below ours, never mind our current level.

“There were players on his list who play at step six and step seven. We play at step four and there is a big difference between that level and step five, never mind the levels below that. We also need players who can play at United Counties League level in the likely event of our relegation. We want to make sure we have a squad strong enough to compete at that level.

“We decided we needed to part ways now rather than let things fester and Seb has decided to say certain things publicly which is disappointing."
