Ebbsfleet United have sacked manager Jamie Day after less than five months in charge.

A statement said: "The club announced this afternoon that manager Jamie Day has been issued notice to terminate his contract.

"Barry Ashby and Dean Frost (Day's assistants) have also had their contracts with the club terminated with immediate effect.

"A further comment will be made in due course regarding the future football management structure at the club."

Day succeeded Steve Brown in December 2014 with the Fleet fourth in Vanarama Conference South.

But he lost nine of his 20 league games in charge, drawing four and winning just seven.

Fleet gradually slipped out of reach of the play-off places and Saturday's 1-0 defeat at St Albans proved to be Day's final game in charge.

The former Welling boss signed 11 new players during his short spell in charge and let seven leave the club.

Meanwhile, five Fleet players have just signed contract extensions for next season.

Earlier this month, Day told KentOnline he expected to still be in charge at the start of next season and that he believed the club's board were still 100% behind him.

But at a meeting on Tuesday afternoon, the 35-year-old was given the bad news.

Ninth-placed Ebbsfleet finish their season on Saturday with a home game against Bishop's Stortford.
