AFC Telford: Southport boss Liam Watson linked with vacancy

Liam Watson

Departing Southport boss Liam Watson has become the latest name to be added to managerless AFC Telford's shortlist, reports BBC Radio Shropshire.

Watson, 42, announced on Wednesday that he will leave Haig Avenue following the Sandgrounders' final Blue Square Bet Premier game of the season against Luton on Saturday.

Telford currently have John Psaras in charge until the end of the season.

They were relegated to the Blue Square Bet North on Easter Saturday.

But they are at least ending the season on a more optimistic note.

Telford had recorded a Conference record of 30 league games without a victory before Saturday's success.

But their 3-1 victory to relegate Liam Daish's Ebbsfleet last Saturday was their first league win in six months.

Psaras, who is among a long list of candidates who have applied for the job, is the Bucks' fourth manager since Christmas.

After sacking Andy Sinton in January, Mark Cooper took over for just a month before joining Swindon Town and the next man in, Graham Hyde resigned just 10 days later.
