Guiseley AFC Sack Manager Cox

Paul Cox Sacked By Guiseley

Guiseley AFC have this morning confirmed they have sacked manager Paul Cox along with his back room staff Adam Murray and Ben Marvin with immediate effect.  Cox has been in charge at Nethermoor Park since September when he replaced Adam Lockwood.


Paul Cox took charge of the Lions for 24 League games, wining 3, drawing 8 and losing 13 matches in the Vanarama National League, he did however also manage 2 FA Cup wins including a giant killing against Accrington Stanley at the Wham Stadium.

Cox, was also instrumental in take the club full-time in December, whilst also increasing the size of the playing squad from 25 to 41 full time professionals.  Despite the manager being fully back by the Chairman & Board of Directors in terms of player recruitment the change of management from Adam Lockwood to Paul Cox has not improved either the performances or the results, which has led to Cox being dismissed this morning.


Experienced professional Sean St Ledger will now take charge of training until a new manager can be appointed by the club.  The next manager will need to hit the ground running, in terms of reducing the playing squad, making the side difficult to beat and improving the sides performance to enable the club to go on a winning run in order to keep the club in the Vanarama National League.
