TWO National League clubs have opted to part company with their managers today.

Aldershot Town have dismissed boss Danny Searle while Barnet have sacked head coach Harry Kewell.

The Shots, who won 3-2 at Southend United last Tuesday, sit 21st in the standings.

And chairman Shahid Azeem told the club’s official website it was a tough decision to make.

“Aldershot Town Football Club would like to place on record our sincere thanks to Danny for the work he has done during his time with the club and we all wish him well for the future,” said Azeem.

“This has been a very difficult decision for the board to make, particularly with Danny taking over at the club in challenging times from the beginning, as we were unsure what league we would be in back in 2019-20 and also the Covid-19 pandemic affecting the 2020-21 season too, which didn’t see us start the season until October 2020 without any supporters in the grounds too.

“This season has also seen us face a difficult start, but despite this Danny has given his all during these tough times and we are extremely thankful for his efforts.”

Barnet are below the Shots in 22nd place and have also opted to make a change in management.

Barnet’s head of football Dean Brennan, who will take charge on a temporary basis, told the club’s website: “It was clear how much Harry Kewell wanted to have a positive impact, but ultimately the results and the poor start to the season have dictated our decision.

“The plan for this season was for Barnet FC to be challenging in the top half of the table and that is still very much our aim.”
