Newcastle United Football Club have confirmed that they have parted company with manager Chris Hughton and Goalkeeping coach Paul Barron.
The club who won promotion to the Premier League this season have said they are seeking someone ‘more managerial experience’ to take the club forward.
In a statement released this afternoon the club said: The board would like to place on record their thanks to Chris for his considerable efforts during the club's transition from Championship to Premier League football.
Chris has shown exceptional character and commitment since being appointed manager in October 2009. The club wishes him well for the future.
Regrettably the board now feels that an individual with more managerial experience is needed to take the club forward.
The task of appointing a new manager now begins. An announcement will be made shortly regarding transitional arrangements pending the appointment of a successor.
Hughton becomes the first Premier League managerial casualty of the season.
