AFC Fylde took another step to potential promotion, with a win over Barrow. The Coasters ran home with a 3-1, with second half goals from the league’s top scorer Danny Rowe and Serhat Tasdemir finished off Barrow, with Fylde moving into 7th place, the last play-off position.

Woking and manager Anthony Limbrick part ways after a run of 9 games without a win. Former Woking boss Geoff Chapple, who is on the board of directors, will take charge until the end of the season, working alongside Jason Goodliffe. Woking currently sit 2 places above the relegation zone, 3 points ahead of Solihull Motors, but Solihull have a game in hand.

Chester manager Marcus Bignot will leave the National League club when his contract runs out at the end of the season. The 43-year-old was appointed to the position in September, after former manager Jon McCarthy left the club. Chester are second from bottom in the league and 10 points adrift of safety with six games left to play. The club said, “This season has been an extremely tough one to endure for each and every Chester FC supporter. It has also been a challenging environment for Marcus to be involved with. The board wishes to emphasise that we understand the frustrations of all concerned.”

Woking have agreed a ground share deal for the next season, allowing Combined Counties League Sheerwater to use the Laithwaite’s with a two-year agreement signed.
