Appointed in February as the successor to Bill Prendergast after stepping up from assistant manager, Gibbons, pictured, left Stainton Park on Wednesday morning following his side's latest reverse, Tuesday night's 4-0 loss at home to Prescot Cables.
After losing their opening six matches in EVO-STIK League North and going out of the Emirates FA Cup in the First Qualifying Round, the 3-2 victory over Tadcaster Albion his side secure on Saturday proved to be a temporary stay of execution for Gibbons whose exit by 'mutual consent' was confirmed in a brief club statement.
Radcliffe chairman Paul Hilton said: "It has been a very difficult start to the season on the pitch, after what had been a very positive summer off the field. We have worked tirelessly to redevelop the club and unfortunately performances this season have not matched the expectations of all concerned. Joe is a genuinely great guy and we wish him all the best for the future."
