Peterhead FC has announced the departure of First Team Manager John Sheran and his Coaching Team.
After a disastrous start to the season exiting the Ramsdens Cup and Communities League Cup in the first round and five defeats in six league starts, decisive action was necessary.
In a statement, Toon chairman Rodger Morrison said: “We are all very disappointed for John. Although he has worked extremely hard, he has been unable to find a winning formula.
“It is a regrettable situation, however we feel a change now is required to maintain our promotion ambitions.
“We would like to thank John and his team for all their hard work and dedication they have shown in their time at the club.”
Peterhead FC will be accepting applications for the position of first team manager as of next week.
The latest news comes in the same week that the club appointed sacked Broch manager Charlie Duncan in a role within its youth development team.
Even now there is mounting speculation that Duncan - who was British football’s longest serving manager with 27 years at Fraserburgh - could be headed for the hot seat at Balmoor.
