Harry Kewell has been sacked as manager of Barnet after just seven games in charge, following another defeat at the weekend.

The Bees were beaten by Bromley on Saturday, meaning they remained winless for all seven matches for which Kewell was in charge.

In a statement on the club website head of football, Dean Brennan, said: “It was clear how much Harry Kewell wanted to have a positive impact, but ultimately the results and the poor start to the season have dictated our decision.

“The plan for this season was for Barnet FC to be challenging in the top half of the table and that is still very much our aim."

Kewell's assistant Paul Butler has been sacked along with the Australian.

Brennan, who joined the club at the same time as both Kewell and Butler will take over responsibility for first-team matters while the club searches for a replacement.

After arriving in June, Kewell said he wanted to create a "winning environment" at Barnet, saying: “We all seem to be singing off the same same sheet here so which is great. I’m sure there’s going to be altercations between everyone, but that’s what you want, you want to create that winning environment and that’s what we’re trying to create here.”

However, seven games into the season and the Bees find themselves second bottom of the table, with only two points on the board.
