Ipswich Town boss Paul Jewell departs the club by mutual consent.

Ipswich Town boss Paul Jewell has departed the club by mutual consent.

The 48-year-old took charge of the club in January 2011, but it is understood that talks between club owner Marcus Evans and chief executive Simon Clegg led to the departure.

Evans told the club's official website: "Since he first walked through the door here, no-one has worked harder to bring success to this football club than Paul Jewell.

"Unfortunately his outstanding commitment has not been rewarded by results on the pitch and having spoken with Paul at length, we feel it's best for him and the club if we go our separate ways.

"I'm bitterly disappointed – as is Paul – that it has not worked out as we had hoped when he became our manager 21 months ago and I would like to put on record my thanks for his services to the club and wish him every success in the future."

Jewell added: "I could not have had any more support than I have done from Marcus Evans and Simon Clegg I have enjoyed working with both of them in my time as Ipswich Town manager.

"We all know that football is a results business though and I've never hidden from the fact that our results have not been good enough.

"It's been a privilege to be manager of such a fantastic football club and I want to thank the staff and the supporters for the backing they have given me in my time at the club and wish Ipswich Town the best of fortunes ahead."

Ipswich currently sit bottom of the Championship after 12 games.
