LEAGUE Two strugglers Stevenage have parted company with Paul Tisdale - and appointed Steve Evans as his replacement.

Tisdale, who spent the final eight games of last season at Colchester United in an advisory role working alongside head coach Hayden Mullins, has paid the price for Boro's poor run of form.

Tisdale presided over nine games without a win as Stevenage manager, including six defeats and they lie three points above the League Two relegation zone.

The former Exeter City manager's time at the Lamex lasted just 109 days and he has now been replaced by Evans, who left League One side Gillingham in January.

Stevenage chairman Phil Wallace said “Paul has worked tirelessly for us since he joined but we have won three points from the last nine games to drop into a relegation fight.

"With nine games to go, we have to change our fortune and we are hoping Steve will do that."

Evans has managed more than 570 games in the English Football League and guided Rotherham United from League Two to the Championship. in 2014.

The Leeds United and Peterborough United boss will now be tasked with the job of trying to keep Stevenage in the Football League.
