Newcastle sack Asst Mgr and Reserve Coach

Recommended Posts

NEWCASTLE United today confirmed that assistant manager Terry McDermott and reserve team coach Adam Sadler had left the club.

And United also revealed today that Chris Hughton would take over as caretaker manager to be assisted by Academy duo Richard Money and Geordie Alan Thompson starting with Saturday?s home game with Hull City.

The pair had both worked closely with Kevin Keegan since he returned in January but will now seek pastures new.

McDermott was part of the KK revolution in 1992 when he helped save the club from oblivion as the Magpies escaped relegation to the old Third Division.

United of course then won the old First Division in style a year later and qualified for Europe in their first year in the Premier League before narrowly missing out on the title in 1996 under the guidance of McDermott and KK.

McDermott has also worked under Kenny Dalglish, Graeme Souness, Glenn Roeder and Sam Allardyce before being reunited with Keegan this year.

Former Manchester United youth team goalkeeper Sadler worked with the Toon Academy until 2006 before he was promoted to the first team coaching staff under Glenn Roeder.

Sadler - who guided the reserves to the Northumberland Senior Cup in May - was later appointed as reserve team coach when Lee Clark quit the club to join Norwich City in December 2007 but his short tenure was confirmed this morning.

The pair were told not to report to the training ground as usual and to make their way to St James?s Park where they were told about their futures.


Trying to erase any and all connection to Keegan it seems, since these 2 were both his allies at the club.

Can i just point out they were not sacked, they took the decision to leave the club after the recent treatment of Kevin Keegan

Considering thats wrong, that wouldn't make sense. If you read, they were called in and told they were let go. And its the same story all over the papers.
