Murray Moves On As Fylde Try To Find Their Saviour

AFC Fylde this morning begin their search for a new manager after last night sacking Adam Murray.

The former Mansfield midfielder guided the Coasters to the National League North title last season.

But it’s been a painful start to their return to Step 1 after struggling to adapt following promotion back in May.

Saturday’s 3-0 defeat at Oxford City was their tenth loss already and the club sit bottom of the National League table with only nine points to their name.

Chairman David Haythornthwaite feels Fylde will be better served under new control - with Chris Beech standing in for next weekend’s FA Cup tie with Leek Town.

A statement read: “Following the recent run of results, the Board of Directors have today decided to relieve Head Coach Adam Murray of his duties with immediate effect.

“The Board would like to place on record its sincere thanks to Adam for achieving last year’s promotion to the National League and wish him all the best for the future.

“The club will now begin an immediate search for a new Head Coach, but in the meantime, Director of Football Chris Beech will take over the running of the team, starting with Saturday’s important FA Cup tie against Leek Town.”
