KEITH Hill and David Flitrcroft could follow chief executive Emma Beaugeard out of the door as the upheaval continues after relegation at Wanderers.

The Bolton News understands a decision is about to be made on the manager and assistant – who are both out of contract at the end of the month.

And all signs point towards the Boltonian pair leaving their post after little more than nine months and 29 league games in charge.

Wanderers’ relegation to League Two was confirmed this week and that has enabled the club to start making key decisions in their efforts to rebuild next season.

Beaugeard’s exit was attributed to “cost reductions” but if, as expected, Hill and Flitcroft’s contract is not renewed it would come as part of a restructure of the football department, which has been overseen by the head of football operations, Tobias Phoenix.

Both Hill and Flitcroft were placed on leave at the start of April and sources close to the pair say they have had little to no contact from the club during lockdown.

Hill was appointed as the successor to Phil Parkinson on August 31 last year and has currently served just 286 days at the helm.

The Boltonian’s arrival coincided with Football Ventures’ takeover and in a frantic first 48 hours he signed nine new players to a club which had been deducted 12 points for going into administration a few months earlier.

A 6-1 defeat at Rotherham United in his first league game illustrated how difficult the task ahead would be, and it took until October 22 for Wanderers to register their first victory at Bristol Rovers.

That was the first of three straight wins, the last of which at home to MK Dons moved the club into positive points.

Billing the push for survival as the “impossible dream” Hill’s bubble was burst by a savage 7-1 defeat at Accrington, and even though the Whites managed to beat Southend United just before Christmas, their hopes of staying up were effectively dead by January.

Calls for change were starting to amplify by the time the country went into lockdown but Hill maintained he had viewed the Bolton job as a “long term project” and felt talk of a managerial change was “crass and unfair”.
