League One news: Oldham sack manager David Dunn after less than four months

first_img1 Oldham Athletic have parted company with manager David Dunn. The 35-year-old only joined the club as a player in the summer and he took over the first team after Darren Kelly’s departure. The Latics sit third from bottom in Sky Bet League One and are without a win in eight games, six of which have ended in defeat.Oldham chairman Simon Corney said on the club website: “I would like to place on record my thanks and gratitude to David for his tireless efforts over the past four months under what have been extremely difficult circumstances and wish him all the best for the future.“He retained his dignity at all times and his hard work and dedication has been commendable.”Dunn joined Oldham as a player in July from Blackburn and took over the hotseat on an interim basis following Darren Kelly’s sacking in September.Dunn drew his first four games and was rewarded with a permanent contract.He only lost two of his first 12 games, securing wins against Swindon, Chesterfield and Mansfield, but his tenure has come to an end after just 20 matches.Home form has been a particular problem, with Oldham having only won once at Boundary Park in League One all season, which came back in August.Dunn’s assistant Dean Holden, who had an even briefer spell as manager last season, and first-team coach Keith Brown have also left the club.Corney said: “Dean has been a loyal and dedicated servant to the club and he leaves with our gratitude and best wishes.”Oldham will now begin the search for a fifth manager in less than 12 months.In a further statement Oldham revealed the club had made progress on finding Dunn’s replacement.“Following the departures of David Dunn, Dean Holden and Keith Brown, the club can confirm we are in talks with a replacement first-team manager and hope to make a further announcement tomorrow afternoon at the latest.” League One news: Oldham sack manager David Dunn after less than four months last_img read more
