Webber sacks Norwich City recruitment chiefs

SPORTING DIRECTOR Stuart Webber has immediately made his presence felt at Norwich City by sacking technical director Ricky Martin and recruitment chiefs Lee Darnbrough and Tony Spearing.

The trio will leave the club at the end of the season. Webber, who was appointed last week, wants to employ heads of recruitment for the UK and Europe as part of a revamp.

The former Huddersfield Head of Football Operations is also looking for a new manager to replace Alex Neil. Alan Irvine will remain in caretaker charge until the end of the season.
