Sacked Barry Town Manager continues to lead the side
Fri 14th Dec 2012 | Football Club Management
A sacked manager of a football club has ignored the dismissal by his chairman and continued to lead the side in training ahead of managing them this weekend.
Gavin Chesterfield was told his services were no longer required at Barry Town FC yesterday, yet he led a full squad of supportive players in a training session last night and shows no sign of handing over the reigns.
It's the latest twist in a sorry impasse between the players, fans and club Chairman Stuart Lovering, who has actually put the club up for sale on home-selling website, Zoopla.
Mr Lovering has said he will not accept less than £170,000 for the side and says if he does not receive a bid by Christmas, then he will liquidate the 100 year-old club. The players have not been paid since the start of the season.
A supporters group is trying to rally funds for a buy-out, but the relationship between them and Mr Lovering has soured as time has gone on.
Barry Town were former League of Wales members and are the only Welsh team to have reached the proper rounds on European club football competitions since the league was created.
