Forest Green have surprisingly parted company with manager Duncan Ferguson – just six months after he signed a lucrative five-year deal.
Chairman Dale Vince said:”It’d has been a privilege to work with Dunc these last few months and this was a very difficult decision to make.
“I’m grateful to Dunc for joining us in such difficult circumstances and for all of his hard work at the club. But I feel this is overall the right decision for everyone and I wish Dunc well in his next coaching role. We are parting as friends. You can’t ask for much more than that.”
Ferguson arrived in January to replace sacked Ian Burchnall, but was unable to stop them from returning to League Two.
Ferguson won just once in his 18 matches in charge last season.
