Marcus Bignot axed by Grimsby


Grimsby have sacked Marcus Bignot as manager after just five months in charge at Blundell Park.

The League Two club appointed Bignot in November after Paul Hurst left to manage Shrewsbury but felt the former QPR defender was not the man to push for a second successive promotion.

A statement on the club’s website read: “Following Grimsby Town Football Club’s return to the EFL, there remains a strong ambition to build on last season’s promotion.

“Therefore, it is with regret that today the club has decided to release the current management team from their first-team duties.

“The board would like to put on record their thanks to Marcus Bignot, Michael Moore and Gary Whild for all their hard work and efforts during the last six months and wish them the best for their futures.”

Bignot, who was manager of National League side Solihull Moors until his switch to the Mariners in early November, oversaw nine league wins, seven draws and 10 defeats which left Grimsby 14th in the table and seven points off the play-offs with five matches remaining.
