Brighton and Hove Albion said that the full-time contract of its women’s team manager, James Marrs, has been terminated with immediate effect.
The decision follows an internal investigation and disciplinary hearing after allegations were made via the Sussex County Football Association.
The club said that it followed FA guidelines and UK employment law procedures in conducting the investigation and the subsequent disciplinary hearing.
And in line with UK employment law, Marrs has the right to appeal against the club’s decision.
The club said that it would not be making any further comment on the sacking. But, to discourage speculation or inappropriate rumours, the club said that there was no suggestion of any criminal actions by Marrs.
Albion women won the FA Women’s Premier League Southern Division earlier this month. They face the Northern Division winners in a play-off at Adams Park, in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, on Sunday 29 May.
