FOLLOWING this afternoon's 4-2 defeat at Brentwood Town, Tilbury FC manager John Coventry and the Isthmian North club have parted ways.

The defeat leaves Dockers four places from the foot of the table in a zone that could see them end the season in a relegation trap if results don't improve.

After the match Coventry, who was appointed in the close season, met with club owner Danny Nash and afterwards his departure was announced to the club's players.

Nub News was given to believe the decision would be formally announced as by 'mutual consent' but when a statement was issued by the club this evening it was confirmed it was the club's decision to 'relieve John Coventry' of his duties.

Also sacked club assistant manager John Coventry jnr and first team coach Kevin Scott.

It is believed a new Tilbury manager will be announced shortly, though the club statement says they are not looking for a full time manager' so applications 'will not be looked at'.
