League Two club Cambridge United Football Club has announced the firing of manager Joe Dunne after seven months in charge.

Cambridge United have managed just five wins in their 20 league games this season in League Two and are three points clear of the relegation zone, and the club decided to sack Dunne.

Cambridge director of football Graham Daniels told the club’s website: “On behalf of the Board I would like to thank Joe for everything he has done for Cambridge United.”

“It is never easy to part company with a head coach – particularly someone who has played a number of significant roles at the club over several years and for whom everyone at Cambridge has great affection and respect.

“Results have however dictated the need for change. We believe we have the talent in this squad to be further up the table. While the team has shown its ability in patches during the season we have struggled to find consistency.

“As a result, the board came to the conclusion that the team would benefit from a change of leadership.”

Joe Dunne added: “Thank you to the club for the opportunity and I wish all the staff, the players and the fans of Cambridge United every success for the future.”
