Ex-boss Dick Creasey insists he does not want to be full-time manager at Wisbech Town after taking charge for their 3-2 defeat at Huntingdon on Saturday.
Creasey is helping out after Steve Appleby quit the troubled United Counties League Premier Division club last week following their summertime switch from the Thurlow Nunn Eastern Counties League, where they finished second last season.
Wisbech, beaten 4-0 at home by the new UCL leaders Huntingdon just two weeks ago, showed some guile and passion at Jubilee Park, but lost to a dynamic Ricky Marheineke team who are still unbeaten in both the league and FA Cup. Creasey said: 'I'm just looking after the club – I don't think I have any intentions of coming back full-time.
'I'm getting an old man now, but I wouldn't see the club in a mess so I shall get them through it and the club has to work hard behind the scenes to ensure they get the right person in.
'The club asked to me to help out until such a time as that happens and I'm prepared to do that.'

Stuart Wall, on loan from King's Lynn for the day, scored the opener in the third minute. And for 25 minutes there was only one team in it.
Wisbech were gifted an equaliser with a bizarre own goal whengoalkeeper Tim Trebes cannoned the ball off Charlie De'ath and it rolled into an empty net. Two minutes into the second half Wisbech were 2-1 up when Ewan Clarke scored with a header.

Huntingdon got back on level terms through debutant striker Jacob Joyce and then, when Paul Cousins clearly handled the ball in the box with just minutes remaining, Jamie Graham made it 3-2 from the penalty spot.
'The players are down and they are feeling sorry for themselves but in life you have got to turn that round very quickly,' said Creasey.
