FORMER Tranmere Rovers defender Matt Hill has been sacked as manager of Strafford Rangers after an 11 game winless run in the Northern Premier League. 

Rangers sit bottom of the table with just eight points from 15 games so far this season and they suffered a 5-0 defeat to Worksop Town on Tuesday evening. 

The club said: “It is with deep regret that we can confirm the club has parted company with first team manager Matt Hill by mutual consent.

“Matt took over the reins at a very difficult time for the club and brought stability on the football side securing an eighth-place finish in his first season. A mid-table finish followed in the second season and we had all hoped to progress this year. Sadly, for whatever reason, results have been below expectation and leave the club in a precarious position.

“We would like to thank Matt for his total commitment to the club and endless hours he has devoted to bring success on the pitch.”

Hill joined Tranmere in 2014 and played 42 games for Rovers in both League Two and the National League.
