Dave Shearing has agreed to stay on as manager until St Francis Rangers finds a new boss.

Shearing tendered his resignation after Saturday’s 8-0 defeat to Worthing United - a defeat he called embarrassing.

St Francis are currently bottom of the Southern Combination Football League Premier Division having lost all 12 games with a goal difference of -75.

Club chairman John Goss said: “I met with Dave and he has agreed to stay on until a new manager is in place. Dave has worked really hard to get a team out every week even after some big losses the morale in the changing room has been excellent.

“I would like you to appeal for new manager, please phone John Goss on my home number 01444232210 or my mobile 07748785240 my e-mail”
