Keith Curle Relieved Of His Duties

Keith Curle Relieved Of His Duties

Notts County have today removed Keith Curle from the managers chair with immediate effect.

Having taken over last February, Curle was informed of the decision earlier this afternoon, and is related to our current run of winning only 2 of our last 11 games in all competitions which has seen us fall to 10th place in the league, a 5 points away from the Play Off positions.

Aswell as dismissing Curle, first team coaches Colin Lee and Colin West have also departed.

A statement from the Chairman Ray Trew on Official Site read.

'This obviously is not a decision that we have taken lightly and certainly not one that I have taken any pleasure in reaching, I have a tremendous amount of respect for Keith, both as a man and a manager. However, recent displays have unfortunately not lived up to expectations and our poor disciplinary record has only further hampered our progress. Attendances at Meadow Lane have dropped in recent weeks and this has made this a business decision as much as a footballing one, because fans are obviously key to the club and their support is essential. I would like to thank Keith, as well as Colin Lee and Colin West for all their hard work, there have been plenty of highs to enjoy in that period, but there comes a time when we, as a Board, have to consider what we feel is best for the future of the club.'
