Tommy gone! Reds make Wright move to dismiss assistant head coach

Barnsley FC have today terminated the contract of Assistant Head Coach Tommy Wright with immediate effect.

A meeting between the Oakwell Club’s chief executive Linton Brown and Mr Wright was held this morning, and after considering Wright’s response to the allegations made in the Daily Telegraph about breaching FA rules over player transfers and accepting a £5k ‘bung’, Wright – despite disputing the claims – was duly dismissed.

In a statement, the club said they were ‘unaware of such matters or involved in any wrongdoing’ and that they would ‘continue to fully investigate the issues at hand and will co-operate with the regulatory authorities as necessary’.
