Wisbech Town have been rocked by the departure of interim joint managers Arran Duke and Mark Warren.

The duo had only been in charge for five games, replacing Chris Lenton, who left after two games. He had stepped in temporarily after Brett Whaley left just before Christmas.

In a statement, Duke and Warren said: "We wish the club all the best. The players are a great bunch of lads and our reasons for leaving are certainly not based on results and performances.

"We do hope the club gets the results it deserves going forwards."

A spokesman for Wisbech Town Football Club added: "We are currently in discussions with a caretaker manager to take charge of the game against Stamford on Saturday."

Wisbech entertain the Daniels in the Pitching In Northern Premier League Midland Division on Saturday, before travelling to play former manager Whaley's Spalding United on Tuesday.

Some good news at Fountain Fresh Park is that King's Lynn Town loanee Joe Gascoigne has signed until the end of the season and young Stamford winger Rodrigo Goncalves has signed on loan for a month, but will not play against his parent club on Saturday.

Stamford manager Graham Drury explained: "Rod fancied a month of trying to get 90 minutes of football in and I feel it will be good for us as well because we will need him fully fit for the final months of the season.

"It works for all parties because he had a good loan spell with Sleaford at step five earlier this season and he now wants to move up a level which will do him good.

"We know that we have a talent on our hands because he scored at Halesowen and won the late penalty against Khalsa so it's just about keeping him happy and fit and ready to come straight into our squad and team."
