Southampton Football Club can today confirm it has agreed to part company with its Vice Chairman (Football), Les Reed.
The club believes the time is right to take constructive action and make a change that will provide new drive and direction to our football operations team and enable them to get results back on track.
The search for the right replacement, along with a thorough review into the club’s football operations, has begun.
Chairman Ralph Krueger said: “I would like to go on record to thank Les for the eight years of hard work and dedication he has given Southampton Football Club. His time at the club will be remembered for the fine work he did in overseeing our progress through the divisions and establishing the club in the Premier League.
“The process of recruiting the right individual to head up our football operations is under way, and is a decision that needs to be given the necessary time and attention that reflects what an important position it is within our club.
"Now, more than ever, we are grateful for the continued support of our staff and fans as we work towards our joint aim of moving up the table.”
