Jewell and Ipswich part ways

Paul Jewell has departed his role as manager of Championship club Ipswich Town.

The 48-year old has left Portmand Road after 21 months following an 11-game winless run which has seen the Tractor Boys fall to the bottom of England's second tier table.

"I could not have had any more support than I have done from Marcus Evans and Simon Clegg I have enjoyed working with both of them in my time as Ipswich Town manager," he told the club's official website.

"We all know that football is a results business though and I've never hidden from the fact that our results have not been good enough.

"It's been a privilege to be manager of such a fantastic football club and I want to thank the staff and the supporters for the backing they have given me in my time at the club and wish Ipswich Town the best of fortunes ahead."

Former Walsall, Bradford City and Wigan Athletic boss Chris Hutchings has been installed as caretaker, moving up from his assistant manager role.
