FLEETWOOD Town have parted company with manager Simon Grayson.

The club announced that the former Bradford City boss, who had been in charge since January 2021, had left with immediate effect.

Town currently sit in the League One relegation zone and are without a league win in six games after being beaten 3-1 away at Oxford on Tuesday night.

A statement on the club website said: "Fleetwood Town can confirm head coach Simon Grayson has left the club with immediate effect.


"Following a difficult run of results, assistant head coach David Dunn will also depart and everyone at the club would like to place on record their thanks to Simon and David for their hard work and professionalism during his time at the club.

"The search for his replacement will begin immediately and we will issue a further update on the first team staff in due course."

Fleetwood next face AFC Wimbledon at Plough Lane on Saturday.

The ex-Leeds United boss was at the Bantams helm for a brief three-month period in 2018 capturing just three wins in his 14 games as manager before departing that summer.
