Jol Gets The Chop!!

WE can confirm that the board has asked Martin Jol, club manager, and Chris Hughton, first-team coach, to stand down with immediate effect.

We have not taken these decisions lightly or without recognition of the contribution both Martin and Chris have made to the club.

Chairman Daniel Levy said: "Martin and Chris' departure is regrettable. Our greatest wish was to see results turn in our favour and for there to be no need for change.

"We feel honoured Martin has been manager, having seen us qualify twice for Europe. Chris has been with us since 1977, bar a three-year period, as player and coach and has been an excellent ambassador.

"They have been professional, popular and respected members of staff and there will always be a warm welcome for them at the Lane."

The first team will be coached by development coach Clive Allen and youth team manager Alex Inglethorpe.
