Rangers’ Sammy Moore is asked to stand down by chairman

CONCORD Rangers have announced they have asked manager Sammy Moore to step down at the end of a season when they should have made the National league South play-offs – but were kicked out because of a ground technicality.

Rangers were not allowed to take part in the play-offs, despite being in the top seven, because they did not have 500 covered seats in their ground by a time specified by the FA ground grading team.

Today the club announced the parting of the ways with the manager – citing ‘ongoing personal problems’. A statement says Moore’s backroom team have been asked to stay on.

Club chairman Ant Smith said: “Unfortunately Sammy has been asked to step down as 1st team manager due to ongoing personal problems.

“We would like to take this opportunity to wish him all the best for the future.

“Jack Midson, Darren BEale, Danny Scopes and Adam Drewe have been asked to remain at the club and we await their decisions.”
