Dereham Town have made the “very difficult” decision to part company with management duo Neal Simmons and Matt Parkinson.
The Magpies currently sit bottom of the Bostik North with only 14 points after having three deducted earlier in the campaign – this time last season they sat top of the division.
Simmons took on the role in the summer of 2017, after previously spending nine years as assistant to Matt Henman and has been involved with the club for more than 15 years. Parkinson also joined him at that time.
A club statement read: “Dereham Town FC has taken the very difficult decision to release our current management duo, Neal Simmons and Matt Parkinson, from their roles with immediate effect.
“The Club wishes to thank both for their considerable efforts, both on and of the pitch, over many seasons.
“‘Simmo’ and Matt will always be welcome at Aldiss Park.
“‘Simmo’ in particular has been involved in all aspects of the Club’s functioning, far in excess of that normally required of a manager.
“An announcement regarding their successors will be made within the next day or two.”
