Alfreton Town have confirmed the club has parted ways with manager John McDermott with immediate effect.

The club also confirm that assistant manager Karl Lenighan and first-team coach Chris Millington have also left. McDermott was appointed Reds boss in May 2017 following his departure from the position as Director of Football with Cleethorpes Town.

He made several high-profile signings during his time at the Reds including Craig Disley, Brendon Daniels and re-signing Bradley Wood. However, results this season have contributed to a difficult campaign thus far and have left the side in 18th place in the National League North, a point clear of the drop zone.

Reds Chairman Wayne Bradley said: “I want to thank John and his backroom staff for their efforts during their time at Alfreton Town. The season has not shaped the way we wanted; it’s been a tough season so far.

“It makes sense for all to move on. John, Karl and Chris go with our best wishes for the future and it was a decision the club had to make.”
