Buckle shown Bristol Rovers exit door
Paul Buckle has been sacked as manager of Bristol Rovers Football Club.
The 41-year-old joined the Pirated last summer and brought a number of fresh faces to the club, but they have in recent weeks plummeted to 19th place in the League Two table.
A 2-0 defeat at Barnet on Monday was the final straw for Buckle, who has now been replaced on a temporary basis by Shaun North whilst a permanent successor is found.
"We are all very disappointed," chairman Nick Higgs stated.”We felt we could not go any further with the current situation as the threat of relegation was becoming too real.”
