For a considerable time the club and directors have worked with Rob Scott in an effort for him to accord with an acceptable standard of conduct, knowing that he had self acknowledged difficulties which he was working to resolve.
Given Rob’s failure to improve and the circumstances relating to Gross Misconduct during the Nuneaton home fixture led to the disciplinary panel concluding there is nothing to suggest he was likely to change.
It is therefore with regret Rob’s employment with the club has been terminated in accordance with the club’s disciplinary procedure.
Rob has appealed the decision and on the basis of the information he has provided the appeal has been rejected.
In the meantime the club will make no further statement until this process concludes, which may take a couple of weeks or more.
The club appreciates and understands the fans frustration in not knowing the detail relating to this situation and thank them for their loyal support at this difficult time.
In looking forward to the weekend’s fixture we ask for our fans continued support to manager Paul Hurst, players and everyone at the Football Club during this period.
