​Shrewsbury axe boss Ricketts

Shrewsbury Town have sacked manager Sam Ricketts and his assistant Dean Whitehead after just one league win all season and the club 23rd in League One.

The 39 year old had been in charge since December 2018, when he left his role as Wrexham boss to take the Shrews job.

"Shrewsbury Town can confirm this morning that the club has parted company with manager Sam Ricketts and assistant manager Dean Whitehead," a club statement said.

"The club would like to place on record our thanks and acknowledge their hard work and dedication to STFC and the community and wish them all the best in the future.

"The search for a new manager will begin straight away and the club will aim to find the right candidate as soon as possible."
