MANAGER Phil Yearling is not afraid to make “brutal decisions” in his quest to bring success to FC Clacton.

The Seasiders boss was left frustrated and disappointed after his first home game in the hot-seat resulted in Saturday’s 3-2 defeat at home to lowly Woodbridge Town.

Jake Plane gave Clacton the lead but their visitors netted three times before Ally McInnes provided late hope on a miserable afternoon at the Rush Green Bowl.

Afterwards Yearling provided an honest assessment and described his side’s first-half performance as “completely unacceptable”.

And he said he would not be afraid to ring changes, if things do not improve.

“I don’t want to make wholesale changes and disrupt things, because we’ve got a good group of lads,” he told the Gazette.

“But if we want to stay and compete in this division next season, we may have to do that."
