Barlow Axed

Last updated : 24 October 2006 By Andy Beill
Barlow has been replaced by the man who preceded him, Colin Murphy. Murphy, previously Peter Taylor's assistant, was given the job of Development Director when Parkinson and Barlow came in, but due to the team's poor start to the season has been reinstated.

Ayles has left the club due to 'family reasons', going back to the south-east. A new Fitness Coordinator will be appointed to replace him.

Goalkeeping coach Mark Prudhoe and physio Simon Maltby remain on the staff working with the first team squad, but further appointments are possible in order to give Parkinson the help he requires to lift his side off the bottom of the table.
