D-Day as Foyle’s war comes to an end

Martin Foyle’s reign as Southport manager has come to an end this evening, exactly six months on from his appointment. The club announced the news via their twitter feed. After 14 games in charge, 9 of those defeats Foyle recorded one of the highest loss ratios of any permanent Southport manager. Excluding George Ross’ 13 day tenure in 1983 it is the highest in non-league football for the Sandgrounders. The dismissal comes less than a week after Southport recorded their first win on the road in over 14 months but Saturday’s heavy defeat at the hands on Woking was to be Foyle’s last in charge. The club have also confirmed that assistant manager Andy Porter has too left the club.

Their successors are yet to be announced.
