Eastleigh Axe Martin Allen

by Jack Kitson / 22 February 2017, 12:36

Allen Martin has left Eastleigh after less than three months at the helm.

The 51-year-old was only appointed at the start of December - he surprisingly left his post at League Two Barnet in order to join the National Conference club (for money reasons) - but has now been sacked after just 14 games at the helm.

During his brief 84-day tenure Allen lost seven games, triumphed only twice, failed to win a single home game, and remarkably turned over more than 30 players.

Tuesday’s disappointing 1-0 defeat at home to Macclesfield, which extended the club’s winless run to a depressing seven games, proved to be the final straw with Allen today (Wednesday) shown the door.

Under Allen’s rein Eastleigh dropped from 9th down to 15th, meaning he now leaves the club closer in points to the relegation zone (9) than the play-offs (14).

It's just a shame for Allen that his former club Barnet, with whom he has managed on a whopping four different occasions, found a new boss in Kevin Nugent last week.

Eastleigh are next in action away to promotion hopefuls Dover, who have picked up seven points from their last three league games, which is followed by clashes with Aldershot and York City.
