Non league managers also under pressure this season

It is not only Football League managers that are feeling the pressure this season with non league Redditch United being the latest club to dispose of their manager. This makes two teams in the Blue Square leagues that have sacked their managers in the last two days.

First to go was Martin Ling who the boss of Blue Square Bet Premier side Cambridge United. He had been in charge of the side for 18 months he and was hoping to get his side promoted into the Football League as part of a 3 year plan however they currently sitting in 16th place in the league, 15 points away from the play off zone and 25 points off automatic promotion. He has today been replaced by Jez George who was the sides director of football, he will now handle all first team duties until the end of the season.

Ling is followed today by Matt Gardiner and his assistant John Snape who left Redditch United in altogether different circumstances. The club has revealed that they have a zero playing budget and needed to make immediate changes. The Reds are currently at the bottom of the Blue Square Bet North table with just 11 points from 24 games and they are 8 points away from safety. The board at the club had to make the decision to keep the team afloat as the manager was the clubs biggest expenses. The lack of funds was highlighted in the sides last match at home only 184 fans turned up for the game against Stalybridge Celtic in which they lost 3-1.

The rest of the squad are now considering if they are willing to play the remaining games of the season unpaid, maybe the millions the Premier League sides are given should perhaps head downwards towards these grass roots sides.
