Salford City have announced that joint-managers Anthony Johnson and Bernard Morley have left the recently-promoted club.

The Ammies have just won the Vanarama National League North title, but their joint-gaffers will not be continuing with the club into next season despite winning three promotions in four seasons. On the club’s website, a statement said:

A meeting took place between the club’s management and the managers and there were
irreconcilable differences around personal terms relating to contract length and performance
related matters. We tried to work through these differences but no mutually acceptable agreement could be reached.

Co-owner Gary Neville said: “The last four seasons with the managers have been the most successful in the club’s history and a huge part of that is down to Anthony and Bernard, so this announcement is regrettable.
However, after a meeting this morning between myself, senior management and the managers it was clear there were differences between us that could not be resolved and it was therefore decided to part ways, and whilst this is disappointing, it is the right decision for all concerned.”
