Former Watford striker Gifton Noel-Williams has been sacked as manager of Codicote.

The 37-year-old arrived at the John Clements Memorial Ground in the summer but after a dreadful start to the season, the club made the decision to let him go.

Cod sit bottom of the Spartan South Midlands League Division One, having lost 12 of their opening 14 games, conceding 56 along the way.

A statement from the club announced the news.

It read: “Codicote Football Club regret that they have parted company with Gifton Noel-Williams with immediate effect.

“Gifton came to the club and impressed everyone with his coaching ability and the influx of talented young players.

“But results with this new young squad didn’t materialise and the club couldn’t continue in its current form.

“Again Codicote would like to thank Gifton and his family for their commitment, inspiration and dedication to the position and we wish him all the best.”

His last match in charge was a 6-0 home defeat by Baldock Town on Tuesday night.

The club have also said they are actively seeking applications for his replacement, but only from “appropriately experienced candidates”.
