JD Welsh Premier League club Carmarthen Town have terminated the contract of manager Mark Aizlewood after a hearing today.
The 58-year-old penned a two-year contract back in August, after leading the club to a top six finish last season, where they lost 2-1 to Cardiff Metropolitan University in the Welsh Premier League European Play-Off semi-final.
So far this season, Carmarthen Town have picked up four wins, three draws and six defeats under Aizlewood. They are in the bottom six, but after a troublesome start to the season, the Old Gold recently begun to pick up some momentum, and combined with the new signings, there was a sense of quiet optimism that they could achieve survival.
Aizlewood had been in charge for Carmarthen Town since 2012 and lead the club to two Nathaniel MG Cup victories, in both 2013 and 2014. He also kept the club up from relegation in his first season, after being joint bottom when he took the reigns.
Carmarthen Town released a statement on the termination of Aizlewood, who played 39 times for the Welsh national team.
“With Mark Aizlewood being found guilty, his contract with Carmarthen Town will be terminated. As a club we wish to thank him for his work on the field of play.
Carmarthen Town also wish to emphasise that the club were not aware of his activities and were not part of the enquiry.”
The Old Gold’s last result was a 3-1 victory over Prestatyn Town, which took them off of bottom spot. Newtown are the next team to travel to Richmond Park on the 10th of February.
