Bradford (Park Avenue) have sacked player-manager Garry Thompson and player-assistant manager Shaun Gardner.

It follows 4-1 and 5-0 defeats in the opening National League North games of the season. CEO Damian Irvine also left the club last week.

Chairman Gareth Roberts said: “As a club, we wholly own this decision and would like to place on record our sincere thanks to the pair for their hard work and commitment to the role.

“We regret Garry and Shaun’s time with us has been so short as we really hoped things would work out differently as they are both great guys. We understand there will be question marks over our decision after only a few games in charge but hopefully this will allow them to build good careers in the game.

“We only wish them well going forward.”
