Relegated League One side Crewe Alexandra have parted company with their chief scout Glyn Chamberlain. Chamberlain has been at the club for four seasons having previously worked for Fulham in the Premier League. He told BBC Radio Stoke: "It's been a terrific place to work at, I have gained valuable experience under Dario Gradi, Steve Holland and Neil Baker." Chamberlain is keen to remain in the game and he has already received a number of enquiries from other clubs. The 51-year-old's position came under threat when manager Gudjon Thordarson wanted to bring in his own number two, and that has led to current assistant manager Neil Baker being offered another role within the club. Baker is expected to accept that position, and that will see him take on some of the scouting duties. Chamberlain added: "I know that any team getting relegated usually has a knock-on effect, but I'm sad to be leaving. However I do have confidence in my own ability, and I hope someone else will give me an opportunity to do what I enjoy." During his time with the South Cheshire club, Chamberlain has been involved in plucking John Brayford, Billy Jones and Danny Woodards out of non-league football to be become regulars in League One last season.
