Blackpool sack manager Simon Grayson after dreadful run of one win in 12 games at League One club
- Blackpool released statement confirming Simon Grayson has been dismissed
- Recent abject form has seen them slip down the League One table to 15th
- His replacement is not yet known and further announcement will be made
Blackpool have sacked manager Simon Grayson after a dreadful run of just one win in 12 games.
The League One club were fourth in December but are now down in 15th, prompting the decision to part ways with their 50-year-old boss.
A statement on the club’s website read: ‘Blackpool Football Club can confirm that Simon Grayson has today been relieved of his duties as first-team manager.
Simon Grayson has been sacked from his job as Blackpool manager after a dreadful run
‘The Club would like to thank Simon for his efforts during his time back at Bloomfield Road and wish him well for the future.
‘A further announcement will follow in due course.’
It was Grayson’s second stint in charge of the Tangerines having previously led them to promotion back in 2007 from the same division.
The season started with promise and it looked like Blackpool were on course to be in the promotion conversation once again.
But since December 14, they only managed four points from 27 available and plummeted down the table.
Armand Gnanduillet has scored 18 goals this season and been Blackpool’s most dangerous player but there has been precious little support outside him to share the burden.
With 15 matches remaining in the season, the new manager will have a huge job on his hands to close the 13-point gap to the top six.
