On This Day

December 15th
Time runs out for Docherty
Out of the League and FA Cups and with just a single victory from the first 18 league games, a six-goal hammering at Layer Road proved to be the final game of Mick Docherty's unsuccessful time in charge. Billy Horner returned to the hotseat with the thankless task of lifting the club from the foot of the league.
