FOLLOWING his convinction on a charge of fraud at Southwark Crown Court today, Mark Aizlewood has been sacked as manager of Carmarthen Town.

A statement from Richmond Park says: "With Mark Aizlewood being found guilty, his contract with Carmarthen Town will be terminated. As a club we wish to thank him for his work on the field of play.

"Carmarthen Town also wish to emphasise that the club were not aware of his activities and were not part of the enquiry."

Aizlewood returned to Richmond Park for a third time in January 2011 to take over as manager of the Old Gold following the dismissal of Tomi Morgan.

He first joined the coaching staff in 2003/4 as assistant to Andrew York, leaving to become assistant manager of Chester City, but later returning as assistant to Deryn Brace, before departing again in September 2009 to pursue his business interests.

Aizlewood joined his home-town club, Newport County in 1975 as a defender, before joining Luton Town. He moved on to Charlton Athletic in 1982 and won his first Welsh cap four years later, making 39 appearances in all.

He also played for Leeds United, Bradford City, Bristol City, Cardiff City, Merthyr Tydfil, Aberystwyth Town and Cwmbran Town before hanging-up his boots in 2002 after making 499 Football League appearances and 81 (+18) in the domestic league.
