Wycombe part company with boss Taylor

Peter Taylor has left League One outfit Wycombe by mutual consent. The former England U21 manager guided the Chairboys to promotion from League Two last season at the first attempt but has paid the price for a poor start to the season.

Club owner Steve Hayes said: "Peter is an honourable man and he knew that it was time to move on. He came to me and said he was very disappointed with the way the season has begun and understood that things had to change."

He added: "He leaves with our thanks and best wishes for the future and I want to place on record our gratitude for the excellent job he did for us last season in getting us promoted."

Head of youth development Richard Dobson is taking caretaker charge.

Assistant manager Junior Lewis has also left the club.

Hayes is confident that the club will continue to attract high calibre applicants.

He said: "Wycombe have a good reputation for appointing managers and I am sure that we will get plenty of high calibre applicants.

"Peter's successor will inherit an excellent squad of players and with 35 games still to play, we are confident that our league position will improve."
