Sky Bet League Two outfit Stevenage have announced that they have parted company with manager Darren Sarll following a poor run of results according to the club’s official website.

The 35-year-old former non-league midfielder recently passed his two year anniversary in charge at The Lamex Stadium but has lost his job after picking up just two points from his side’s last three matches.

Sarll’s final match in charge of Boro saw his side throw away a two-goal lead to draw 2-2 with Port Vale at Vale Park on Saturday. That result leaves the Hertfordshire club in 16th place, 13 points clear of the relegation zone.

After a playing career which saw Sarll represent the likes of Hitchin Town, Bedford Town, St Albans City and Dunstable Town, the former midfielder moved into coaching with Stevenage and was initially a youth and reserve team coach for the club. Various development roles with Brentford and Rotherham United followed before he returned to Stevenage in summer 2012 to take up a role within the youth system.

Sarll became involved with the Stevenage first team when Teddy Sheringham was appointed manager. When the former England striker was sacked, Boro appointed Sarll as caretaker boss and he was later installed as the club’s permanent manager.

Since taking charge at The Lamex Stadium, Sarll had won 36% of his matches as Stevenage boss although the club have collected three points on just 11 occasions in the league this term.
