Tranmere Rovers have terminated the contract of manager Rob Edwards, after the club suffered their 7th defeat of the season at the weekend.

The Club Tweeted:

Chairman Mark Palios said,

“Rob is a decent man who has worked very hard over the past few months for the Football Club. 

Palios went on to say,

“However, with the club currently sitting at the bottom of League 2 for the first time in 32 years it was decided this was the right time to make the break.”

Tranmere haven’t won a league game since the end of August, and as a result sit bottom of the League Two table after they were relegated last season. They have only picked up 9 points from a possible 36, winning 2, drawing 3 and losing the other 7.

With no comment from the manager, Palios said,

“If we are to achieve the required results in future it is clear that we need to strengthen the squad further.” 

Palios sent a message to the fans saying,

“In the meantime, I would like to thank you, our supporters, for your loyalty and patience throughout the recent disappointing run of results. Your vocal support to the end away at Bury and again here on Saturday against Plymouth was magnificent, and I know it helped the players to keep fighting to the end.”
