The Italian was only appointed on 2 October but the club now languish in 22nd place in League Two.

Cavasin was the eighth man to take charge of the clubs since the club were bought by the Italian businessman Francesco Becchetti in 2014. His departure comes following the 1-0 defeat against Exeter City, who went into the game bottom of the table.

Andy Edwards has been put in charge until the end of the season.

“The club can confirm that Alberto Cavasin has been relieved of his managerial duties with immediate effect,” a statement read. “We thank him for his efforts during his time with the club and wish him well for the future and he departs the club alongside head of fitness Alfredo Vergori and Matteo Festa.”
