Chatteris Town are back on the hunt for a first team manager after negotiations with a new boss collapsed this week.
The Lilies had a manager in place to replace the outgoing Ashley Taylor, who stepped down after Chatteris’ final game of the season at West Wratting, but it is understood the deal fell through on Wednesday evening (May 10).
Taylor, who is due to take on the role of director of football as of next season, said: “The manager and his assistant we had lined up have pulled out, which means I may have to stay on unless we can find a suitable replacement in time.”
The Lilies are now advertising the manager’s role on social media, with the post saying the club is looking for an “ambitious manager with professionalism and drive.”
It goes on to say: “You will inherit a young talented group of players and you will have full support and backing from the committee.”
On the pitch, Chatteris signed off their Kershaw Premier Division campaign with a hard-fought 1-1 draw at West Wratting last Saturday.
Craig Gillies continued his average of a goal per game with a bullet header, and boss Taylor was pleased with his side’s overall performance.

“Saturday was a good point for us and an impressive display to end our season,” he said.
“We made changes, playing three under 18s players and they all played with maturity throughout the game.
“All in all, we should have got the three points but their goalkeeper made some fine saves in the second half.”
