Jamie Wright has stepped down as manager of Wellingborough Town.

Wright, who became the Doughboys boss during the summer, resigned following the 2-1 defeat at Boston Town yesterday (Saturday), which left Wellingborough in the bottom two in the ChromaSport & Trophies United Counties League Premier Division.

Wright confirmed his departure by posting on Twitter. He said: “I have to be honest and say I have not enjoyed the managing side.

“My passion was always playing. I am not going to give excuses like work commitments. I will be honest. I tried it, didn’t like it and found it to be time consuming.

“I wish Wellingborough Town all the best this season. They are a good group of lads that will do well.”

Wright’s final game at the helm ended in late drama. Wellingborough were heading for victory thanks to Jake Newman’s 11th league goal of the season.

But Boston levelled on 85 minutes through Alex Beck and then won it at the death thanks to Jack Wightwick.

Desborough Town moved up to 10th place as two late goals sealed a 4-2 victory at Huntingdon Town.

John Dean put Ar Tarn in front but the hosts drew level before half-time thanks to Jamie Waterworth’s penalty.

Fraser Glover regained the lead for Deborough, only for Jack Jefferson to make it 2-2.

However, Ian Walker’s men claimed the points as Luke Cummins put them in front for the third time with six minutes to go and Aidan Bradshaw wrapped it up from the penalty spot.

Rothwell Corinthians picked up another point as they fought back from a goal down to draw 1-1 at Deeping Rangers.

Scott Coupland opened the scoring for the hosts on 36 minutes but Jordan Henson earned Corinthians a share of the spoils when he levelled early in the second period.

Deeping had the chance to nick all three points but Scott Mooney missed from the penalty spot.
