Petersfield Town’s boss in dramatic walk out at half time

By Post in Football

PETERSFIELD Town could soon be appointing their fifth manager of the season following the dramatic walk out by current boss John Robson during a game.

The Rams boss left Love Lane at half time on Saturday after watching his side go 3-0 down in the first half of Saturday’s 4-2 home defeat to Kidlington.

Robson reportedly told the players he was off in the dressing room before leaving the stadium just as the second half got under way.

Chairman Graeme Moir and Robson have met since Saturday’s incident and now the club’s committee is due to meet to decide on the best way forward coaching wise for the rest of the season.

Moir said:?“Having spoken to John I?can understand and sympathise why he did what he did.

“He left out of sheer frustration – the season has been awful for us and nothing seems to go our way.

“On Saturday, for example, we had a penalty awarded against us inside the first minute of the game that you just don’t see given.

“That killed any optimism built up in the team almost as soon as they have started the game.

“It has been a frustrating time for everyone and John has done everything he can in his powers to try to turn the situation around.

“What we need to do now is take stock of the situation and put in place a plan for the next two months.

“The reserves can still win some silverware so not all is lost from the season.”
