Chris Moyses to leave Lincoln City

Chris Moyses has announced he will step down as Lincoln City manager at the end of season after talks with Chairman Bob Dorrian.

His decision has come just three days after he questioned his own position following the Imps 2-0 defeat away at Bromley.

That defeat continued their poor run of form only winning four of their last 22 games, sitting twelfth in the Vanarama National League table.

The 50 year-old took over as caretaker manager following former boss Gary Simpson being placed on gardening leave in November 2014. He was then offered the managerial position a month later.

Moyses, who is unpaid as Lincoln City manager, told LincSport exclusively that he was in contract talks earlier this season for a new deal with some “financial reward.”

However, following the Imps poor run of form Lincoln City announced his decision to leave at the end of the season in a club statement:

“It is my intention to stand down at the end of the season,” says Chris.

“I made this decision last week and it’s not one I’ve made lightly but managing a football club as well as running my own business has led to me working over 80 hours a week and that is simply not sustainable.

“The Club is in a good place and there has been a complete overhaul of the playing side. Like the foundations of a house, you can’t see where the strength is and whoever takes the reins will inherit a strong, decent group of players ready to challenge next season.”
