Harry Kewell sacked as Notts County manager

Notts County have sacked manager Harry Kewell after less than three months in charge.

Kewell, who replaced Kevin Nolan at the end of August, won just three of his 14 matches in charge of the League Two club.

County – who made the League Two play-off semi-finals last season – are currently third from bottom with 14 points.

County owner and chairman Alan Hardy said: “Harry’s passion and commitment as a coach is unquestionable.

“I enjoyed seeing first-hand his love for the job and it gives me absolutely no pleasure to take that away from him.

“Unfortunately, however, things quite simply were not working out for him here at Meadow Lane.

“Results have not been good enough and performance levels are a continuing concern. We see no reason to continue with something we don’t think can work.

“Harry leaves with our best wishes for the future and our search for a new manager begins immediately.”

Assistant manager Warren Feeney and first-team analyst Paul Murphy have also left the club – first-team coach Steve Chettle will take temporary charge of first-team affairs.

Notts County hope to make an appointment before Saturday’s home game with Cheltenham Town.
