Caretaker Michael Flynn replaces sacked Graham Westley at Newport County

Newport County have sacked Graham Westley, who becomes the 39th top-4 managerial casualty this term.

First team coach Michael Flynn has been placed in charge of the first team until the end of the season.

The 36-year-old was previously a director of the club's youth academy, while his only role in the managerial arena came with Welsh Football League Division Two outfit Undy Athletic.

Westley was only appointed back in October, replacing Warren Feeney in the dugout, however the 49-year-old has now been hurled out of the exit door after just 29 matches at the helm.

Westley claimed only six victories during that five month time frame, registering a measly win percentage of just 20.7%.

The former Stevenage, Peterborough, and Preston boss now leaves the Exiles rock-bottom of League Two, 11 points adrift of safety with a dozen matches remaining.

The Welsh outfit have only recorded one win from their last 20 matches in all competitions, while they have only triumphed once in 18 league games, a rotten run of form which includes 11 defeats.

Meanwhile, Westley's assistant manager Dino Maamria has also left Rodney Parade.
