FC HALIFAX TOWN have sacked manager Neil Aspin following their poor start to the National League campaign.
A statement from the Shaymen board confirmed the development this morning, with the former Leeds United defender paying the price for the club’s poor form this calendar year.
The Shaymen head into Saturday’s home clash with fellow strugglers Southport on the back of a miserable sequence of just one win in ten league outings this term, with the club sitting second-from-bottom - one point above their opponents this weekend.
Aspin’s final game in charge came in a 2-1 derby reverse at West Yorkshire neighbours Guiseley.
A statement said: “Neil Aspin was currently in his sixth season with the club. The decision was sadly and reluctantly taken following a prolonged period of indifferent results stretching back to February 2015.
“That said, the club wishes to place on record sincere thanks to Neil for his contribution to the club’s great success over the last few seasons.
“The board and everyone involved with the club, wish Neil every success in the future.
“We are sure he will be back in football very quickly.”
