Barrow AFC Sack Michael Jolley
Sky Bet League Two strugglers Barrow AFC have sacked manager Michael Jolley after just two months in charge at the club. The Cumbrians, have lost their last four games currently sit in twenty-third in the table and a point from safety. Michael Jolley’s assistant Rob Kelly has been appointed as caretaker manager until the end of the campaign.
Kelly had a spell in interim charge earlier this season following the departure of David Dunn, who had been appointed last summer for the club’s return to the English Football League after a 48-year absence.
Club Chairman Paul Hornby told the club website, “Unfortunately the board and Michael Jolley have differing visions for how the team should play. We believe it’s best to make the change early so that the team can concentrate on the remaining games of the season, this has not been an easy decision to make. However, the board feels that it’s the right decision and one that gives us the best possible chance of remaining in Sky Bet League Two.”
