Tranmere Rovers Football Club can today confirm Keith Hill has been relieved of his duties as first team manager with immediate effect.
Chairman Mark Palios said: “Despite success achieved on the pitch in the form of securing a place in the Play-Offs and reaching the Papa John’s Trophy final, in the Play-Offs an entire season gets distilled into two or three games.
“I have to do what I think gives us the best chance of achieving promotion in those games and I have reluctantly come to the conclusion that means making the change before the semi-finals begin.”
Ian Dawes will take charge for the Play-Offs and will be assisted by Andy Parkinson.
The Club will be making no further comment.
