Scunthorpe United Football Club has today relieved Alan Knill of his first team duties with immediate effect.
The difficult decision was made inevitable by the recent long run of disappointing performances, particularly at home.
The club would like to thank Alan for his hard work and wish him well for the future.
Brian Laws has been appointed manager with effect from tomorrow (Tuesday, October 30) and he will be assisted by Russ Wilcox. A management team which has previously brought success to the club.
Chris Brass and Neil Cutler have agreed to stay on and discuss their future with the new manager.
The board are delighted that Brian has returned to our club and feel confident that he will be able to restore the confidence to our talented squad of players and look forward to progressing quickly towards a more secure position in the league.
