As Gloucester City Football Club continue to struggle both on and off the pitch following the recent resignation of Manager Tim Harris and their 2-1 defeat to Eastbourne Borough.

The National League South side fell 2-0 behind after just 25 minutes with goals from Eastbourne’s Ian Simpemba and Jamie Taylor.

Following his departure Harris stated that “I’m at the stage where I feel I can’t do anything more for this football club. I can’t put myself in a position where I can do anymore for Gloucester City the way it is structured at this time.”

The club have been experiencing problems both on and off the pitch with a number of staff members including assistant manager Marc Richards leaving Gloucester City, only adding to the growing number of problems the club faces.

As well as a number of ground changes over the years, which sees them currently sharing a pitch with Evesham United, Gloucester City now face more uncertainty on the pitch.

In the absence of both Harris and Richards, player coach Will Morford took charge against Eastbourne.

The game eventually finished 2-1 to Eastbourne, Gloucester’s Joe Parker with the consolation goal after 52 minutes.

This result comes as Gloucester’s fourth defeat in a row seeing them placed 16th in the league, one place below Eastbourne.
