Wisbech Town have appointed former boss Dick Creasey in a caretaker role following Gary Setchell's sudden exit.

Creasey will be helped by Setchell's former assistants Ross McNeil and Daz Edey for Saturday's Ridgeons Premier home game against Kirkley & Pakefield.

Boston-based Creasey ruled out succeeding Setchell on a permanent basis.

"Wisbech is a fantastic club and I had a great time there when I was manager but I work for myself and don't have time to do the job permanently," he said. "I'm happy to help the club out until they find a manager, whether that be for a few weeks or until the end of the season. Setch did a superb job and hopefully we can continue the good work that he has done. It seems he received an offer he couldn't refuse to manage his hometown club and I wish him the best of luck.

"There are exciting times ahead at Wisbech Town, with the move to the new ground and it's a great challenge for anyone who wants to come in and take in permanently."

Creasey dismissed fears Setchell's departure could spark a mass player exodus.

"Lynn FC won't be playing until next season so at the moment it's not a concern for me," he said. "Players won't leave and not play football for six months. I think the players are very excited to see what happens at Wisbech and who will come in as the permanent manager."

Former Wisbech boss Roy McManus has already declared his interest in the vacant post after three previous spells at the club.
