Right time to sack Ian Little, says chairman

The board felt Berwick were going in the wrong direction under Ian Little.
The board felt Berwick were going in the wrong direction under Ian Little.

Berwick Rangers chairman Brian Poteous has praised Ian Little for being a loyal servant, but says the time was right for him to go.

Little was sacked as manager on Sunday after two years in charge.

The team had won only two of their last eight games and Saturday’s reverse was the final nail in his coffin.

Porteous said: “Sacking Ian wasn’t an easy decision, but we felt it was the right time for the club to move on.

“The board felt we should be much higher up the division than we currently are. We have a good squad and the feeling is we should be in the top four or five and not sitting third from bottom of the table.

“Credit to Ian, he has been a loyal servant to Berwick over the past nine or ten years. He got the team playing some good football, but the results have just not been there.

“Some fans have claimed we lack ambition, but I can assure them that I want us to be out of the second division as much as they do and the appointment of Colin Cameron shows that we are committed to bringing success to the club.”
