Former Barnsley and West Bromwich Albion coach axed from role as head coach of non-league club…

Former coach Adam Murray, who previously worked with Barnsley and West Bromwich Albion, has been dismissed from his position as the head coach of AFC Fylde.

After less than a year in charge since November 2022, the 42-year-old is departing with AFC Fylde struggling at the bottom of the National League, trailing the safety zone by five points.

A statement issued by AFC Fylde announced the decision: “Due to recent poor performance, the board of directors has chosen to terminate Head Coach Adam Murray’s contract with immediate effect.

The board expresses its gratitude to Adam for guiding the team to last year’s promotion to the National League and wishes him success in his future endeavors.

The club will promptly commence the search for a new head coach. In the meantime, Director of Football Chris Beech will assume control of the team, beginning with the crucial FA Cup match against Leek Town this Saturday.”

Adam Murray initially served within Barnsley’s academy and took on the role of caretaker manager on several occasions before becoming an integral part of Valerien Ismael’s coaching staff.

He followed Ismael to West Bromwich Albion and Besiktas after their time together at Oakwell.
