Grantham Town’s board of directors have fired joint managers Gary Sucharewycz and Ian Robinson.

The board took the decision at a meeting on Monday following the Gingerbreads’ heaviest defeat of the season on Saturday, when they lost 5-0 at home to Nantwich Town.

A press statement issued by the club as the Journal went to press said the board of directors “felt that the current drop down the league coupled with the subsequent drop in attendances at home games meant that action needed to be taken.”

Speaking to the Journal, Robinson said he was “extremely disappointed” by the decision after he and Sucharewycz saved the Gingerbreads from relegation last season: “We came into a dire situation and have built a squad that is more than competitive in this league.

“Yes, we have had some blips, but you can’t change the decision. We have learnt a lot from the experience.”
