Salford part company with Richie Wellens just over a week after Papa John's Trophy final win

Salford City have parted company with manager Richie Wellens just over a week after he led the club to glory in the delayed Papa John’s Trophy final.

Salford saw off Portsmouth on penalties at Wembley on March 13 in the final of the 2019/20 tournament, which was postponed a year due to coronavirus.

However, Wellens has paid for Salford’s poor league form, leaving his side six points outside the League Two play-off places.

The 40-year-old’s final game in charge was Saturday’s 2-0 defeat at Cheltenham. The result means Salford now have just one win in their last eight league fixtures.
