Waltham Forest have this evening parted company with manager Qayam Shakoor.

The decision was not one the club makes lightly, but with the threat of relegation looming ever larger, and the inconsistency in performances and results this season, the board feel a change in management is necessary.

We’d like to thank Qayam, and the rest of his management team; Anton, Gent, and Tony for their hard work at the end of last season and this season, and wish them the best for the future. Anton and Gent will remain part of the coaching team.

An announcement as to who will replace Shakoor will be made tomorrow (Tuesday).
