Newport County have sacked Manager Warren Feeney with the club sitting bottom of the Football League.

Assistant Andy Todd has also left the club leaving coaches Sean McCarthy and James Bittner in temporary charge.

Feeney took charge of the Exiles in January following the departure of John Sheridan who he had previously assisted as a coach but has faced a difficult start to the season with his side managing just one win in League 2, a run that has seen them slip the very bottom of the table.

In a statement Newport County said:

“The Club can today confirm that Manager Warren Feeney has been relieved of his duties as first-team Manager.

“Following a mixed start to the season the Board of Directors feel a change is necessary.

“We would like to thank Warren for his service since joining the Club back in October 2015 and wish him all the best for his future career.
