Lincoln City manager to step down at the end of the season

This story is over

Lincoln City FC manager Chris Moyses has announced that he will be standing down as boss at the end of the current season.

Moyses came to the decision after discussions with chairman Bob Dorrian and will take charge of the Imps for the last time away at top of the table Cheltenham Town on April 30.

The Imps have had a mixed season in the Conference, with any chances of the playoffs scuppered by seven defeats and just four wins in their last 15 games since the New Year.

This poor form has culminated in four defeats and a draw in the last five matches.

Moyses said:

“It is my intention to stand down at the end of the season. I made this decision last week and it’s not one I’ve made lightly but managing a football club as well as running my own business has led to me working over 80 hours a week and that is simply not sustainable.

“The club is in a good place and there has been a complete overhaul of the playing side.

“Like the foundations of a house, you can’t see where the strength is and whoever takes the reins will inherit a strong, decent group of players ready to challenge next season.”
