Former City striker given his marching orders

Former City striker given his marching orders

Ex-Norwich City striker Mark Robins has had his contract terminated as manager of Barnsley, according to reports.

41-year-old Robins is thought to have fallen out with Tykes owner Patrick Cryne over cuts to the playing budget for next season and the general direction of the club going forward.

He took over at Oakwell in September 2009 and is said to now be serving a 12-month notice period as per the terms of his contract, but neither the club or Robins have issued a statement.

Barnsley are captained by former Canaries defender Jason Shackell, and finished the 2010/11 season 17th in the Championship, fourteen points clear of the relegation places.

Fore more head over to Vital Barnsley.

In other ex-Canaries news, former City stopper Arran Lee-Barrett signed a new two-year deal with Ipswich, keeping him at Portman Road until the summer of 2013. Seems a bit harsh.
