Tim Ryan has been appointed as caretaker-manager of Evo-Stik League Premier club Buxton following the departure of Martin McIntosh.
McIntosh’s number two was named as interim manager following his departure from Silverlands 24 hours earlier before Bucks officials issued a statement setting a deadline of Wednesday, 21st February for potential candidates to apply for the vacant post.
A Bucks spokesman said: “After the departure of manager Martin McIntosh on Wednesday, his assistant Tim Ryan has agreed to take on the role of caretaker-manager until the appointment of a new manager is made.
“Buxton FC invite applications for the post of first-team manager or player-manager. Applications, which will be treated in the strictest confidence, should be made via email by Wednesday 21st February to club secretary Don Roberts at firstname.lastname@example.org.”
McIntosh was the club’s second longest-serving boss after six years at the helm since taking charge in 2012.
After guiding the Bucks clear of relegation in his first season, he led the Derbyshire club to three top ten finishes in the top flight, including just missing out on the play-offs last term.
Ryan takes charge for the first time tomorrow with leaders Altrincham arriving at Silverlands.
