Salford City have confirmed that Gary Bowyer has been sacked as manager – leaving co-owner Gary Neville to search for his fourth boss in two years.

Bowyer, who signed a two-year contract last May, guided the Ammies to a 10th-place finish in League Two but he was relieved of his duties on Tuesday afternoon.

A statement on the club’s official read: ‘Salford City Football Club announces the departure of first team manager Gary Bowyer from the Peninsula Stadium.

Salford co-owner Gary Neville is now searching for his fourth manager in just two years

‘A meeting was held earlier today and the club has made the decision to terminate Gary Bowyer’s contract along with assistant manager Billy Barr.

‘The club would like to thank Gary and Billy for their hard work over the last season, and we wish them all the best for their future roles within football.

‘An announcement regarding the role of first team manager will be made in due course.’

Bowyer is now the third boss to have been sacked by Neville at Salford in two years, following Graham Alexander and Richie Wellens out the door.

Alexander, who helped delivered the club promotion to League Two, was sacked in October 2020 – a decision Neville later admitted to regretting.

‘Last season, Graham Alexander should never have left this club. He should never have left, I should never have made that decision that I made,’ Neville said. 

‘It goes against everything that I believe in and that’s what owning a football club does to you, it takes you to that place where you do things that you don’t believe you ever would do.’

Alexander’s successor Wellens only lasted four months in the role before being sacked – which also came a week after winning the EFL Trophy.
