The New Saints Football Club have decided to part company with first team manager Scott Ruscoe and his assistant Steve Evans with immediate effect.
In a statement, the 13-time Welsh Premier champions said: “The club would like to express their thanks and gratitude to Scott and Steve, who served the club well as manager and assistant manager respectively, as well as players for a number of years.
“The club’s head of coaching, Christian Seargeant, will take temporary charge of team affairs, as the club prepares the search for the next permanent manager, with the post being advertised in due course.
“The club will be making no further statement at this time.”
Saints are currently top of the Cymru Premier, a point ahead of current champions Connah’s Quay Nomads, who have a game in hand.
Last season saw TNS’ run of eight successive Welsh Premier titles ended by Nomads, who were awarded the crown on the unweighted PPG method due to the latter stages of the campaign being cancelled because of coronavirus.
