Lancaster hunt for first win

The only team left in the EVO-STIK Premier League without a win will be hoping to break their duck on Saturday.

Lancaster City have managed just one point from their seven league games so far, which resulted in the departure of manager Phil Brown after the FA Cup defeat to Trafford last week.

Craig Stanley has stepped in on an interim basis, and the Dolly Blues put up a spirited fight in a 2-0 defeat to table-toppers South Shields on Tuesday night.

They host North Ferriby United, who are two places above them in the table, at home on Saturday.

He told the club’s official website: “It was a great effort by the boys and a very good performance, we couldn’t have asked for more.

“We played against a very good team in South Shields, but our shape was good and we had a couple of chances too.

“Overall I was very pleased with the performance.

“We need to take this performance onto Saturday's game now, which is a massive game. We need the same effort and same commitment and we’re going all out to try and win the game.”

Lancaster are accepting applications for the position of first team manager. Applicants should email their CV to the club secretary at with the subject “Managerial Vacancy”. The deadline for applications is Tuesday September 25.
