March Town have parted company with boss Arran Duke.
The news comes after the Hares were beaten 2-1 at home by Mildenhall Town in the Eastern Counties League Premier Division on Tuesday night, their fourth league defeat in as many games.
Duke's assistant, Mark Warren, has also left the club.
A statement from March Town FC said: "This has been a very difficult decision, and not one that the board has taken lightly.
"We are grateful to Arran and what he has achieved in his time at the club and wish him well for the future."
Duke denied that he was feeling any pressure after their latest defeat and said he had not been told about whether he could lose his status as first team manager before Tuesday's game.
Ashley Taylor, who manages the club's under 18s side, will take charge as interim boss.
