Managers Garry Wilson and Danny Bloor have departed struggling Ryman League Premier club Lewes (writes Derren Howard).

Wilson took over at the Dripping Pan in June 2013, they finished 16th last season and have struggled once again this term as they languish in 19th - just six points above the relegation zone.

The announcement came just days after their 2-0 derby defeat at Peacehaven and Telscombe.

A statement on the club website read: “Lewes Football Club announces that manager Garry Wilson, assistant manager Danny Bloor and first team coach Dean Lightwood have stepped down by mutual consent.

“The club would like to place on record its thanks to Garry, Danny and Dean, who have managed the club in a professional manner since taking the roles in June 2013, and take this opportunity to wish them every success in the future.

“There will be an interim team in place for the game against Dulwich Hamlet tomorrow night whilst the search for a new management team begins.”

Recently installed club chairman Stuart Fuller refused to comment any further at this stage.

However, in an interview given to the Sussex Express two weeks ago, Fuller was asked if he anticipated any changes in the first team managerial positions, he added: “That’s a very difficult question to answer right now.

“Our focus is purely on finishing the season as best we can.”
