SUT­TON Cold­field crashed to a home de­feat to close neigh­bours Rushall Olympic in a match which brought the end to the reigns of man­age­ment pair Richard Sneekes and Steve Hinks.

“With re­gret the board has de­cided to re­lieve the man­age­ment team of their du­ties,” the club tweeted last night.

“Richard Sneekes and Steve Hinks depart with our best wishes and thanks for their ef­forts. We hope to make an an­nounce­ment about a new man­ager in the next few days.”

Joe Hull put Rushall in front be­fore Justin Richards equalised for the home side from the penalty spot.

Richards then put Sut­ton 2-1 up with a div­ing header just be­fore half-time but it took Rushall just four min­utes to get back level when Daniel Du­bidat pounced on Jor­dan Sa­mento’s shot which hit the junc­tion of the cross­bar and post.

An al­most car­bon copy gave Rushall the lead through Daniel Wal­dron but Sut­ton then made it 3-3 when David Howarth turned and hit a tame ball goal wards but it beat the keep­ers div­ing save.

But a penalty in time added on was con­verted by Richard Brodie and cost Sut­ton dear. STAR MAN: Justin Richards (Sut­ton Cold­field) EN­TER­TAIN­MENT: ★★★★★
