Newport County have sacked manager Terry Butcher after just five months in charge.

County currently sit bottom of League two, with just one win from ten games since the former England international took charge of the club in April.

Butcher’s assistant Russell Osman and Chief Scout Steve Marsella have also parted ways with the Exiles as part of the shakeup.

In a statement, the club say they are hopeful of naming a successor before Saturday’s meeting with Exeter City.

The move comes amid a week of change at Rodney Parade following the agreed takeover of the club by a consortium of supporters after the departure of major backer Les Scadding.

The result leaves Newport still without a win, having earned just two points from eight games, and sitting at the bottom of the table.
