Brass leaves Scunthorpe

Brass leaves Scunthorpe

A lack of finances has led to Scunthorpe being forced to let one of their assistant managers move on.

Chris Brass, who has been Brian Laws' joint number two, has needed to move on due to financial constraints and the need to undertake cost-cutting measures.

A statement on the official website read: 'United can confirm that Chris Brass has left the club with immediate effect.

'The difficult decision was taken to reduce costs going forward as the club cannot sustain two assistant managers long term.

'The club would like to place on record its appreciation for all the hard work Chris has put in during his time with the club and wish him well for the future.'

It's a real shame that the 37-year-old has been forced to move on, however The Irons' financial concerns are well documented.
