Coronavirus: Jones leaves Luton as part of cost-cutting measures

Fri 24 April 2020 | 15:35

Graeme Jones has left Luton Town less than a year after he was appointed by the relegation-threatened Championship club.

Manager Graeme Jones has left Luton Town by mutual consent to help the Championship strugglers cut costs amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Luton were second-bottom in their first season back in the second tier of English football when the campaign was suspended due to the COVID-19 crisis in March.

Former Belgium number two Jones was only appointed by the Hatters last May, but his tenure was ended on Friday.

Luton revealed the club were "taking an early move to restructure in order to reduce its cost base and to create efficiencies within the football department."

Assistant manager Gary Brabin, first-team coach Inigo Idiakez and technical goalkeeping coach Imanol Etxeberria have also departed.

Chief recruitment officer Mick Harford will act as a "relationship manager between the board, staff and the playing squad on football matters" on an interim basis and Luton will not consider starting a recruitment process until it becomes clear when they will next be in action.
