League Two side Barnet have parted company with Head Coach Kevin Nugent. The North London club had only appointed Nugent eleven games ago, but he has now left the Hive Stadium by what is being described as mutual agreement. The move comes after Barnet's 2-1 defeat against Exeter City at St James Park on Good Friday, that left them in 16th place in the League Two table.
Nugent's overall form saw him win one match across those eleven games, drawing four of them along the way. They have placed assistant manager Rossi Eames in charge of the side for their Easter Monday match against Wycombe Wanderers on a 'caretaker' basis. Eames has already had one spell as manager, having been in charge between December 1st and February 14th in an 'interim' position. With them having started the season with Martin Allen in charge, this is therefore their fourth management team of the 2016-17 season, albeit with Eames covering two of those phases.
With Barnet on 51 points, they are not quite mathematically safe from relegation, but in practice they should be. Hence, it would seem that the Bees are now looking at their plans for the 2017-18 season early, and have decided that Nugent doesn't fit into those.
