FORMER Leyton Orient, Millwall and Brentford striker Gary Alexander has been made Greenwich Borough boss for the rest of the season after the departure of Ian Jenkins.
Former Cray Wanderers manager Jenkins was sacked as Greenwich boss after Saturday’s home draw with Beckenham Town – with the club claiming it was down to an “incident” with a director.
Jenkins took over at the big spending Southern Counties East League club in January 2014 but they missed out on promotion to the Ryman League last year, finishing fourth.
They are currently second in the league, eight points adrift of Hollands & Blair with a game in hand and will be now be led by Alexander.
The 36-year-old striker, who had a spell as Crawley Town interim boss in 2013, joined Greenwich in the summer of 2014 after leaving Burton Albion.
He has now been tasked with taking Greenwich into the Ryman League after the experienced Jenkins was fired after almost two years at the club.
A club statement read: “Due to an incident between Ian Jenkins and one of our club directors before the Beckenham Town game on Saturday, the club were left with no alternative but to release Ian Jenkins from his position as first team manager of Greenwich Borough Football Club.
“Gary Alexander has been appointed to the role with immediate effect for the rest of the season.
“We would like to thank Ian for his work with the club over the last two seasons and we wish him all the best for the future.”
