Tony Hesketh will not be the next manager of Lancaster City.

The popular former boss is understood to have turned down the offer of a third spell at the club on Thursday afternoon.

Hesketh was the number one choice of fans to replace Darren Peacock and his assistant Trevor Sinclair who left the club by mutual consent on Monday.

Garry Hunter and Danny Carlton are set to take charge of the team for the FA Trophy preliminary round tie against Northwich Victoria at Giant Axe on Saturday as the club continue their search for a new boss.
