With Southport one place above relegation Gary Brabin informed Chairman Charlie Clapham on Monday afternoon that he had been head hunted to be part of Everton’s coaching regime.

Paul Carden takes immediate charge at the Merseyrail Community Stadium with an assistant to be announced shortly.

Chairman Charlie Clapham made a statement on the club website last night, he said: “We gave Gary a managers post after a couple of years out of the game. It is a complement to both Gary and Southport FC that Everton want our manager for such a prestigious role. It’s Gary’s lifelong ambition to be part of Everton Football Club and sometimes in life things happen when you are not expecting them to. I would not want to stop Gary achieving his ambition and genuinely wish him all the best. Gary made an immediate impact here and I want to thank him for that and our FA Cup run culminating at Derby County. Paul Carden now has the task of building on Gary’s foundations over the last four months and getting us to a safe position as quickly as possible.”
