Former coach Kevan loses job

Along with manager Craig Short, former Burnley assistant manager Dave Kevan has lost his job at Notts County after three years at Meadow Lane. It was this very week three years ago that Kevan, somewhat surprisingly, decided to drop down to League Two. He said at the time that it was one of the most difficult decisions he'd ever had to work but was swayed by the fact that he would be working with his best friend Ian McParland, who had just been appointed Notts manager, and that Notts County was very much his club.Last season proved a strange one for Dave with all the changes there. He had to contend with the foreign owners and Sven Goran Eriksson who decided to sack McParland and bring in Hans Backe. When it all went tits up, he had to reluctantly take over until Cotterill was appointed.Promotion followed and when the managerial job became vacant in the summer it was another for Notts County player in Craig Short who was appointed with Dave continuing as assistant manager.However, with them in a creditable 16th place in the league it has been decided that the status of the first team should be reviewed and consequently both Short and Kevan have been relieved of their duties with immediate effect.Notts County have become the eleventh Premier and Football League club to make a change of manager since the 2010/11 season kicked off.
