Former Inverness and Hibernian boss Terry Butcher has been axed as Newport County manager, HITC Sport understands from sources close to the club. “He comes with an excellent track record and we would ask fans continue to support the club by coming along to John’s first game against Exeter on Saturday, and of course the first game as a supporter owned community based club”.
In addition to Terry’s departure, Russell Osman (Assistant Manager) and Steve Marsella (Chief Scout) have also left the club.
The former England worldwide defender was appointed in April 2015 to succeed Jimmy Dack, but failed to produce consistent form, with Tuesday’s 3-0 home defeat by Crawley prompting the club to act.
It has been a short spell out out of management for Sheridan who jumps back into a job after leaving Plymouth Argyle last season after failing to get them promoted via the play-offs, where they lost in the semi-finals to Wycombe Wanderers.
‘Newport County AFC would like to thank Terry and his staff for their efforts during their time at the club and wish them every success for the future.
In a statement, the club say they are hopeful of naming a successor before Saturday’s meeting with Exeter City.
