Stockport County have sacked manager Jim Gannon.
County are currently 4th in the National League and a club statement has said his departure is not based on results.
The statement explains:
This has been an extremely difficult decision for the Club’s Board to take and not a decision taken lightly. The decision is not results based but is centred around culture.
We thank Jim for his longstanding service to the Club as both player and manager; he has rightfully been immortalised into the Club’s Hall of Fame and will always be a huge part of County’s history.
We want to reassure fans that every decision made, we believe to be in the best long-term interests of the Club.
Assistant Manager Dave Conlon will take interim responsibility whilst a new Manager is appointed.
There will be no further comment until a new appointment is made.
