Cheltenham Town FC announced today that controversial manager Paul Buckle has left the club.

He was brought over from the US in November to much fanfare, to help arrest the club's slide in the rankings.

However, under his leadership Cheltenham won just one out of 13 games, and are now one point and one place above the drop zone.

Controversial reshuffling decisions and a lack of wins created anxiety and discontent among supporters, and rumours that Buckle's position was precarious. He recently played down whispers about his impending departure.

I've been in this position before and it's uncomfortable, it's not nice, but you need togetherness ... you need togetherness and you hold your nerve.

– Paul Buckle, former Cheltenham Town manager

However today the club announced that he had left by mutual consent.

Head of Academy Coaching Russell Milton has taken temporary charge in time for Saturday's match against Bury.
