New manager Fenlon shakes up Hibernian coaching staff

Recently-appointed Hibernian boss Pat Fenlon has made his first move since arriving at Easter Road with the sacking of two first team coaches.

The Irishman was installed as the new manager of the Edinburgh club on Friday following the departure of Colin Calderwood at the beginning of November and has already dispensed of Gareth Evans and Alistair Stevenson.

"Hibernian FC confirm that first-team coaches Gareth Evans and Alistair Stevenson had been relieved of their duties and will leave the club with immediate effect as new manager Pat Fenlon starts to build his own coaching team," read a statement on the club's official website.

"On behalf of everyone at the club, the board would like to record their sincere thanks for the commitment, dedication and professionalism that both Gareth and Alistair have demonstrated in their time at Hibernian, and wish them all the very best in their future careers.

"Further updates will be published on the club website as appropriate."

Hibs lost 3-1 at St Johnstone on the weekend with Fenlon looking on from the stands ahead of his first match in charge at Motherwell on Friday night.
