Barnsley FC today terminated the contract of Assistant Head Coach Tommy Wright with immediate effect.
A meeting between the Club and Mr Wright was held this morning attended by Club Chief Executive Linton Brown. After considering Mr Wright’s response to allegations in today’s Daily Telegraph about breaching FA rules over player transfers, Mr Wright was dismissed.
The Club was unaware of such matters or involved in any wrongdoing. The Club will continue to fully investigate the issues at hand and will co-operate with the regulatory authorities as necessary.
