The first Highland League managerial casualty of the season in Moray has fallen perhaps predictably on Lossiemouth with boss Steven Dunn quitting after defeat at Fort William on Saturday.
Dunn quit after his side lost out in a seven-goal thriller that provided Fort William with their first Highland League win of the season.
Now Lossiemouth will start the search today for a new manager – with former boss Charlie Charlesworth almost certainly a name that will be considered after he quit his job at Deveronvale last month.
Former Elgin City goalkeeper Dunn admitted that his decision to walk away had been coming for a few weeks. He said: “I have been disappointed with the lack of commitment shown by some of the players.
“It is difficult as you are working on a shoestring – the job takes up so much time so I feel it is time for a fresh face to come in to see if they can do better.”
Club secretary Alan Mcintosh said that the club committee will meet this evening to plan a way forward.
Meanwhile Forres Mechanics and Elgin City both survived to fight another day after drawing a blank in their Scottish Cup tie on Saturday.
After the 0-0 draw at Boroughbriggs the sides will meet again on Saturday in Forres.
