The decision comes as Reds lie 20th in the Conference and were sent spinning out of the FA Cup by Ryman Leaguers Braintree Town at the weekend.

For a rookie manager, Vines enjoyed remarkable success at the Broadfield Stadium and won several trophies, in addition to steering the club into the Conference for the first time in their history.

A season of struggle was then widely anticipated for Reds debut campaign, but Vines showed his skills at the higher level to consolidate a safe mid-table placing that included wins over many established Conference sides.

However, a glut of signings designed to move the club forward following the advent of full-time status, has failed to pay off and Vines departs, with Murray Jones taking temporary charge.
