Fleetwood Town: Sacking in 'best interests' of club

The chairman of Fleetwood Town says sacking Graham Alexander was in the 'best interests' of the club.

In a statement, Andy Pilley said:

“It is an extremely unpleasant part of being Chairman having to make such a decision, however ultimately, for a number of reasons; I felt this was in the best interests of the Club.

“I would like to place on record my personal thanks for the success Graham brought us with the promotion to League One, his supreme professionalism and for all the hard work he invested over his time here at Fleetwood, and wish him all the best for the future.”

The club said they will make a further announcement in due course.
