Speare, who only took a full-time job with the club in the summer, has been shown the Fraser Eagle exit door while physio Joe Hinnighan will have his hours reduced.

Chief executive Rob Heys said the moves were regrettable but necessary to ensure the long-term future of the club.

"It is just unfortunate," he told the Accrington Observer. "We have got a lot lower crowds this season than expected and, with the current economic climate, we are not getting the sponsorship deals coming in.

"We have had to be prudent and make cut backs. It is not wholesale cuts. We employ 50 full-time staff and 100 part-time and it is just one person and restructuring another person's hours.

"It is horrible doing anything like that but we need to make cuts now for the club to survive in the long term. The club is not in trouble but we have had to take action now."
