​Boss Wellens parts company with Salford City

Richie Wellens has left his post as boss of Salford City after agreeing to depart by mutual consent, reports BBC Sport.

His exit comes little more than a week after Salford won the Papa John's Trophy final at Wembley, and just under five months after his appointment.

Having sacked Graham Alexander to pave the way for Wellens' arrival at Peninsula Stadium, Salford are now looking for their third manager of the season.

Saturday's defeat by leaders Cheltenham left them six points outside the play-off places and with one win in their past eight games in the league.
