Blackpool manager step down after one game of new session

Blackpool manager Gary Bowyer has stepped down after one game of the new season, the League One (third-tier) side said on Monday.

Blackpool began their campaign with a 0-0 draw at Wycombe Wanderers on Saturday.

Bowyer, 47, took charge of Blackpool in 2016 after the club were relegated to League Two and secured immediate promotion back to League One in his first season in charge.

"It has been a pleasure to manage Blackpool Football Club over the past two years," he said after becoming the first manager in England's top four divisions to depart this season.

His assistant Terry McPhillips will take charge of the club on an interim basis. Blackpool's next match is a league fixture at home against Portsmouth on Saturday.
