BRACKNELL Town FC have parted company with manager Mark Tallentire.

Robins lost for the first time in the Hellenic Premier on Saturday after a 3-0 defeat at Thatcham Town.

Town are third in the table, having won three cups last season under Tallentire and just missing out on promotion.

Speaking after Saturday's loss at Thatcham, Tallentire told Dave Wright of the Bracknell News: "We still have 30-odd games to go, so it's not the end of the world.

"On reflection, we have had a miles better start this season than we did last year.

"We have had a few new players coming into the group and coming back, so hopefully we can find our mojo over the next few days.

"We have to bounce back and show the grit and character I know we've got in the dressing room."

Tallentire is arguably the most successful manager in Bracknell Town's history.

Robins released a statement on social media earlier this morning confirming Tallentire had left 'by mutual consent'. 

Assistant manager Geoff Warner will take temporary charge of the Robins, starting with a trip to Ascot United tomorrow night (7.45pm ko).
