Gary Elphick has resigned as manager of Bostik Premier League strugglers Worthing.
The club’s on field performances have been mirrored by problems off it with the club’s home ground currently not able to be used.
This is because their 3G pitch has failed three FIFA inspections and they are to play home games at Bognor Regis until the issue is resolved.
Worthing’s fans have had many away games early in the season due to the complications and very little to cheer about.
We can confirm that Gary Elphick has resigned from his position as first team manager following today's defeat.
More to follow shortly. pic.twitter.com/kWGIt8KQ1C

A 5-0 loss to Margate was the club’s 7th straight defeat.
They had previously lost to Met Police, Leatherhead, Lowestoft, Thurrock, Burgess Hill and Dorking.
But the manner of the loss to Gate on Saturday hurt Elphick and the club confirmed he has left the post.
Worthing are due to make a statement soon regarding what happens next.
The Rebels play Dorking Wanderers on Tuesday night and the club are going to announce soon the person who will take the team for that match.
