EXCLUSIVE: Chatteris Town sack manager Steve Taylor

CHATTERIS Town have sacked manager Steve Taylor after a miserable seven months at West Street.

Taylor, who had not watched his side win for 14 games, was sacked by Lilies chairman Steve Bright on Saturday. He was told the news after attending a pitch inspection for Chatteris’ postponed clash with Fulbourn Institute.

The sacking is the latest saga in a disastrous season for the relegation-threatened Lilies, who have slumped to 16th in the Kershaw Premier League.

Taylor returned for his second spell in charge of Chatteris in June, 11 years after he had guided them to a fifth-place finish in the Ridgeons First Division.

The former Ely City and Haverhill Rovers boss took charge of Wisbech Town in 2008 but resigned from a rocky spell with the Fenmen after just 157 days.
