Rylands sack new manager just three days after making appointment


WARRINGTON Rylands have terminated the contract of their new manager Sam Wilson.

It comes just three days after announcing the appointment after the club qualified for the end of season play-offs at the weekend.

The announcement came after an emergency board meeting.

In a brief statement the club said it was terminating the contract of manager Sam Wilson “by mutual consent” and that no further comment would be made by the club.

Wilson had been given a two year contract at the weekend after guiding the club safely into the play-offs in a caretaker role.
All social media posts announcing the appointment have also been removed.

It’s understood the sacking came within hours of the board being notified that Wilson was a convicted rapist and had served five years in 2015 for forcing himself on a woman after she had consensual sex with his friend as reported by the BBC.
