Margate have parted company with manager Iain O'Connell with immediate effect.

The directors of the Hartsdown Park club decided not to renew the Gate boss's contract after this season after poor results saw the side slump into the bottom third of the Ryman League Premier Division.

A club statement said: "This decision was based solely on the club's results, and has resulted with Iain leaving his position with immediate effect.

"The directors would like to thank Iain for his total commitment and dedication to his duties and wish him every success for his future in football."

Senior players Craig Cloke, James Pinnock and Wayne Wilson are set to take charge for Gate's trip to Hendon on Saturday afternoon.
