THE upheaval at Radcliffe FC has continued with the departure of joint manager Garry Vaughan.

The former Ramsbottom United boss spent just two weeks at the Neuven Stadium having arrived with Darren Lyons after the sudden departure of Jon Macken.

Boro have announced that director of football operations Karl Marginson is set to take charge of the side for the time being, starting at home to Buxton on Saturday.

The current status of Lyons has not been confirmed.

“It’s with a heavy heart that I’ve had to make the decision to bring my short spell with Radcliffe FC to an end,” Vaughan said in a statement released by the club.

“I’m unable at this time due to family commitments to devote the 100 per cent required to represent such a fantastic football club.

“I would like to thank everybody at the club for their support and wish them every success in the future.”

The club said: “We would like to thank Garry for his hard work during his short time at the club.”

Boro fans have seen massive changes at the club in recent weeks, Macken, Frank Sinclair and the rest of the management staff leaving on January 17, with the former Manchester City striker citing a difference in opinion with the board about the direction of the club having stabilised since promotion last season.

Vaughan and Lyons then oversaw an overhaul of the playing squad but found it tough going on the field and did not win a game in tandem.

After the 3-0 defeat at home to Lancaster City on Saturday, Radcliffe are without a win in their last eight games and sit 15th in the BetVictor Premier Division standings.

“Confidence is low, that’s plain to see,” said Lyons post-match.

“We had an open forum after the game and left the players to it after having our say. There were a few home truths spoken and we’ll see what the outcome is.

“A lot has happened at the club very quickly and it shook a lot of the lads.”
