Kettering Town boss Nicky Eaden has left the club.
The former Nuneaton Borough and Hednesford Town manager, who played in the Premier League for Barnsley, had taken over at Kettering in June.
A statement from the club reads:
This decision has been made following our poor start to the league campaign and early exit from this year’s FA Cup. The board accept that the step up, to the National League structure, was always going to be challenging but recent performances and our FA Cup elimination were not acceptable.
Steve Kinniburgh and Luke Graham will take the role of joint caretaker manager, while the club conducts a thorough recruitment process for a new, full-time manager.
